    Traxxas Link

    I want to get the traxxas link wireless module to look at my motor and esc temps on my phone, but I don't know if there is any extra accessories needed to do this. Please help!

    Yes. Speed is calculated off of the magnet and RPM sensor in link #1.

    You can get that if you want ACTUAL speed, instead of just calculated speed. Completely up to you though.

    Here are a few videos. The guy is kind of yappy... but he covers it thoroughly:

    It's for the TQi dock version... but install of the sensors on the truck itself would be the same.

    I have Traxxas ID connectors, are they compatible with that power tap cable?

    According to this thread, it fits... but I don't have any personal experience with ID connectors. Worst case scenario, you'd just solder the little red wire to your positive wire.
