    Traxxas X-Maxx rx has two channel 1 slots, therefore the third slot is channel 2 for ESC.

    One to turn and two to burn (accelerate), helps remember the order.

    Cool video and nice that you used it to find the pin. That's why I'm using CEN pins everywhere except lower inners and front uppers at the knuckle.
