This model is controlled by a radio signal subject to interference from many sources outside your control. Interference can cause momentary loss of control.

Moisture causes damage to electronics. While the entire vehicle is highly waterresistant, it is not completely waterproof and your vehicle should NOT be treated like a submarine. The various electronic components used in the vehicle, such as the Electronic Speed Control ESC , servo s and receiver are waterproof, however, most of the mechanical components are water-resistant and should not be submerged.

Metal parts, including the bearings, hinge pins, screws and nuts, as well as the contacts in the electrical cables, will be susceptible to corrosion if additional maintenance is not performed after running in wet conditions.

If you are not willing to perform the additional care and maintenance required, then you should not operate the vehicle in those conditions. Consult the battery manufacturer before use. Do not use Li-Po batteries in wet conditions. Salt water is very conductive and highly corrosive, so use caution. If the motor becomes excessively wet, apply very light throttle until the water is mostly removed from the motor.

Running a wet motor at high speeds may rapidly damage the motor. The additional resistance of operating in water causes excess strain. Alter the gear ratio by using a smaller pinion or larger spur gear. This will increase torque and motor life when running in mud, deeper puddles, or any wet conditions that will increase the load on the motor for an extended period of time.

If you have an air compressor or a can of compressed air, blow out any water that may be inside the recessed connector housing. Avoid rinsing the bearings and transmission. Do not spray the motor. Water and oil may continue to drip for a few hours.

We are confident you will be satisfied with the performance of this durable and resilient vehicle. Please read through the entire manual before setting up and using your vehicle. Read the safety precautions found in this manual. Charge the battery. Refer to the included charging warnings and instructions for battery charging information. Install the AA batteries in the transmitter. Only use alkaline or rechargeable batteries. Install the fully charged battery in the vehicle.

Power ON the transmitter and then the vehicle. Check the steering and throttle control directions. Verify that the servos are moving in the correct direction.

Drive your vehicle. Perform any necessary maintenance. Use of inexpensive tools can cause damage to the small screws and parts used on this type of model. WARNING: Never leave charger unattended, exceed maximum charge rate, charge with non-approved batteries or charge batteries in the wrong mode. Failure to comply may result in excessive heat, fire and serious injury. CAUTION: Always ensure the battery you are charging meets the specifications of this charger and that the charger settings are correct.

Not doing so can result in excessive heat and other related product malfunctions, which can lead to user injury or property damage.

Please contact Horizon Hobby or an authorized retailer with compatibility questions. For faster charge times, we recommend a computerized charger, such as DYN D E F 1 Connect the AC power cord to the power slot on the charger, then connect the other end of the power cord to an AC power source. The system will not interfere with radio systems operating on legacy frequencies, such as 27MHz or 75MHz, neither will you experience any overlapping interference from other 2.

The transmitter and receiver are bound together at the factory to uniquely operate together. For more information on the transmitter, go to www. When the red light fades, signal strength is weakening 7 ST.

Trim adjusts the motor speed to stop at neutral 9 Steering Rate adjusts the amount the front wheels move when the steering wheel is turned left and right 10 Battery Cover covers and holds the batteries that power the transmitter 11 BIND Button puts the transmitter into Bind Mode 12 ST.

REV reverses the function of the steering when the wheel is turned left or right 13 TH. When you turn on and run the vehicle for the first time, you may need to slightly adjust the Throttle Trim. If the vehicle creeps forward or backwards, make a fine adjustment to the Throttle Trim knob on the transmitter. Bumps during transportation can slightly alter the default settings.

Std is the standard RF mode. The receiver LED will start to blink. The transmitter LED will start to blink. If the transmitter does not control the vehicle, repeat steps 1 —8 above. If after several attempts you are unsuccessful, please contact Horizon product support. Binding is the process of programming the receiver to recognize the GUID Globally Unique Identifier code of a single specific transmitter.

If you need to rebind, follow these instructions. Receiver Antenna Using your fingers, gently straighten the antenna wire to be close to vertical from the chassis for the best radio reception. To make the wheels move forward, pull the trigger.

To reverse them, wait for the wheels to stop, then push the trigger. When moving forward, the wheels should maintain a straight line without any steering wheel input. The larger the mAh rating, the more run time you will experience. For example: if you have a mAh battery pack, you can expect close to twice the run time of a mAh battery pack. The condition of a battery pack is also an important factor in both run time and speed.

The longer you run, the hotter the battery plugs can get. Check the standard plugs periodically. As batteries see more use, they will degrade in performance and capacity. How you drive your Twin Hammers vehicle also affects your run times.

If you are performing runs, going from a standstill to full speed repeatedly, you are taxing your batteries and electronics. Hard acceleration draws a lot of current from any battery and will lead to shortened run time. If the bearings are dirty, they will cause significant drag, causing reduced run times and speed.

To change gear ratio, use a smaller pinion gear or a larger spur gear than those originally supplied the Twin Hammers vehicle comes with a tooth pinion and a tooth spur gear. See your local hobby dealer for a wide selection of compatible chargers.

To change between speeds: 1. Press the top of the Channel 3 switch for low speed driving. Press the bottom of the Channel 3 switch for high speed driving. IMPORTANT: If you decide to use a transmitter other than the one included with the vehicle, limit the Channel 3 travel end points and gradually increase the travel until the vehicle shifts. Failure to limit the travel endpoints will damage the transmission servo. Make sure to work on a flat work space.

This will enable you to easily and more quickly make both Toe-in and Camber adjustments. These adjustments should be set with the vehicle sitting at its normal ride height. It may be time to rebuild them. Only use 4-cell 4. This may need to be reversed on some brands of radios.

A beep will sound and the respective LED will indicate the updated battery type.
