    Traxxas tmaxx 3.3 truck controller

    I just bought a used traxxas tmaxx truck, it didnt come with original remote, but the guy gave me a brand new in box spektrum dx2e controller still in box with 3 channel receiver. I started looking at the reciever and the original plugs from the servos on truck wont fit into the ports on the spektrum reciever. The plug pattern isnt the same. What controller can i use for this truck with the original reciever thats in the truck? Im not all to familiar with these trucks and parts, but i got it for $40 and minus it missing original ckntroller its in pretty good shape.

    Look at the number on the receiver and match it up. If it's a TQ/TQi this should help: Traxxas-TQi-Compatibility-Guide

    You may have to trim the tab off the side of the plug.

    Or if you want to install your spektrum radio, here's an install video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gRkR2nkU5pM
    Around the 3:00min mark it shows trimming of the tab Double G is talking about.

    Reciever model # is 2218x. Think ill try clipping the end of plugs first and trying the spectrum controller and reciever before putting out for a tqi controller
