    installing TQi system and 6533 receiver in rustler

    I apologize for what may be a dumb question. I was able to get a TQi controller and the associated receiver for my rustler. I will get the bluetooth module soon. So questions:

    1. what is the plug arrangement? Is there a chart or diagram that lays out what goes where?

    2. Do I need the bluetooth module in order to operate the car?

    3. are the other sensors that are used for rustler used for the new module?

    4. Can i make my question any less clear? Oh come on I am just teasing about this one.

    Thanks for any help.

    1 - same as the arrangement on the current receiver. Steering in ch1 and ESC in ch2

    2 - you dont but its recommended you update the firmware if the radio and receiver did not come from a rustler.

    3 - which sensors? With the TQi you can hook up the telemetry sensors if thats what you mean. I have my vehicles hooked up with the voltage tap and motor temp sensors so I can monitor from my phone while driving and dont have to keep stopping to check these things

    Thank you for the response.

    with question 2, do I need to have the blue tooth adapter in order to update the firmware? The TQi and receiver module is from a TMaxx so if I understand correctly I shuol wait to install until I receive the blue tooth module?

    Thanks again sorry for the questions.

    Yea you need the bluetooth adaptor and the traxxas app to update the firmware. I never ran my vehicles without updating the firmware so im not sure how bad it is but I’d probably wait if you have the bluetooth module on the way
