WATER-RESISTANT VEHICLE WITH WATERPROOF ELECTRONICS
Your new Horizon Hobby vehicle has been designed and built with
a combination of waterproof and water-resistant components to allow you to operate the product in many “wet conditions,” including
puddles, creeks, wet grass, snow and even rain.
While the entire vehicle is highly water-resistant, 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) and servo(s)
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. To maximize the long-term performance
of your vehicle and to keep the warranty intact, the procedures
described in the “Wet Conditions Maintenance” section below
must be performed regularly if you choose to run 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.
CAUTION: Failure to exercise caution while using this
product and complying with the following precautions
could result in product malfunction and/or void the warranty.
General Precautions
• Read through the wet conditions maintenance procedures and
make sure that you have all the tools you will need to properly
maintain your vehicle.
• Not all batteries can be used in wet conditions. Consult the
battery manufacturer before use. Do not use Li-Po batteries in
wet conditions.
• The included transmitter is not waterproof or water-resistant. If
using a different transmitter than the one included, consult your
transmitter's manual or the manufacturer before operation.
• Never operate your transmitter or vehicle where lightning may
be present.
• Do not operate your vehicle where it could come in contact
with salt water (ocean water or water on salt-covered roads),
contaminated or polluted water. Salt water is very conductive
and highly corrosive, so use caution.
• Even minimal water contact can reduce the life of your motor if
it has not been certified as water-resistant or waterproof. 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.
• Driving in wet conditions can reduce the life of 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.
Wet Conditions Maintenance
• Remove the battery pack(s) and dry the contacts. If you have an
air compressor or a can of compressed air, blow out any water
that may be inside the recessed connector housing.
• Remove the tires/wheels from the vehicle and gently rinse the
mud and dirt off with a garden hose. Avoid rinsing the bearings
and transmission.
NOTICE: Never use a pressure washer to clean your vehicle.
• Use an air compressor or a can of compressed air to dry the
vehicle and help remove any water that may have gotten into
small crevices or corners.
• Spray the bearings, drive train, fasteners and other metal parts
with WD-40® solvent or any other water-displacing light oil.
Do not spray the motor.
• Let the vehicle air dry before you store it. Water (and oil) may
continue to drip for a few hours.
• Increase the frequency of disassembly, inspection and
lubrication of the following:
• Front and rear axle hub assembly bearings.
• All transmission cases, gears and differentials.
• Motor—clean with an aerosol motor cleaner and re-oil the
bushings with lightweight motor oil.

VEHICLE PREPARATIONS
CHARGING THE VEHICLE BATTERY
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.
2. The Power LED and Charging LED will turn GREEN when the
charger is connected to the AC power source.
3. Connect the battery pack connector to the charge connector.
4. Press the On/Off button to charge the battery. The Charging LED
turns RED.
5. When the battery pack is fully charged, the Charging LED will turn
GREEN.
6. Press the On/Off button to stop charging. Disconnect the battery
pack connector from the charge connector.
CAUTION: If at any time during the charge process the
battery pack(s) becomes hot to the touch, unplug the
battery immediately and discontinue the charge process.
The vehicle battery charger produces 2000 milliAmps (2 Amps) per
hour. Divide the mAh capacity on the label of a battery by 2000 to
know how long battery charging will require. For example, a fully
discharged 1800mAh battery requires 0.9 hours (54 minutes) to
charge.
INITIAL CHARGE
Your Dynamite peak voltage detection charger includes safety circuitry and programming allowing the charger to stop charging after 15
minutes, if it senses any issues that have come up in charging. The
high electrical resistance commonly found in new, unconditioned,
Ni-MH batteries can cause this safety circuit to activate turning the
charger off before a full charging cycle is complete. This is commonly
known as a “false peak” in your battery charge.
Should this occur during your first charge cycle, it does not necessarily indicate a failure of either your charger or battery. Instead it
shows that the charger is functioning properly and that the battery is
not yet fully conditioned.
To complete your first full charging cycle in the event of a false peak,
restart the charger by pressing the Start button again. Repeat this
process until the charge cycle continues to charge past 15 minutes.
4
boost
It may take as many as 2 to 4 restarts to complete your first one or
two full charge cycles. Once your charger completes a charge cycle
longer than 15 minutes, your battery will be fully charged. A typical
first full-charge cycle should run for 45 to 90 minutes, depending on
the self-discharge condition of the battery since it was shipped from
the factory.
Once your battery is properly conditioned through a few full charge
and discharge cycles, you will see normal operation of the charger
by a single press of the start button, followed by a 60 to 90 minute
charge cycle.

OPERATION
• ALWAYS turn on your transmitter before you turn on the
receiver in the vehicle. Always power off the receiver before
turning your transmitter off.
• ALWAYS operate your vehicle in a wide open area. Operating
the vehicle in a small space or indoors can cause overheating
at low speeds. Operating at low speed increases heat in the
electronic speed control (ESC). Overheating can damage the
vehicle and failure may result.

MAINTENANCE
SETTING THE GEAR MESH
The gear mesh has already been set at the factory. Setting the
gear mesh is only necessary when changing motors or gears.
You must remove the vehicle’s gear cover (A) to make this
adjustment.
Proper gear mesh (how the gear teeth meet) is important to the
performance of the vehicle. When the gear mesh is too loose, the
spur gear could be damaged by the pinion gear of the motor. If
the mesh is too tight, speed could be limited and the motor and
ESC will overheat.
Set the gear mesh by following these simple steps:
1. Loosen the 2 motor screws (B).
2. Put a small piece of paper (C) between the pinion and spur
gears.

SHOCK CLEANING
REAR SHOCK
Oil-filled shocks will require regular maintenance due to the
oil breaking down or getting dirty. This maintenance should be
performed after about every 3 to 5 hours of use, depending on
the conditions that the vehicle is used in.
• Remove the shock from the vehicle.
• Remove the cap from the shock body and dispose of fluid.
• Disassemble the shock. Clean thoroughly with DYN5505. Dry
parts before assembly.
• Re-assemble the shock and refill the shock body with silicone
fluid (30 weight recommended).
• Slowly move the shaft and piston up and down to remove air
bubbles.
• Move the piston to the midway point of the body and install
the cap.
• Wipe off any overflowing fluid.
• When properly filled, the piston should rebound about 3/8 in
(9.5mm) after being pushed in fully.
• Re-install the shock on the vehicle.

Ride Height Adjustment
Ride height is an adjustment that affects the way the vehicle
jumps, turns and goes over bumps. Drop one end of the
vehicle from approximately 6 inches (152 mm) in height onto
a flat surface. When dropping the front of the vehicle, after
the vehicle settles, make sure the front arms are equal and
parallel to the flat surface. Do the same with the rear to make
sure both arms are parallel with the flat surface.
Lowering the front ride height increases steering, but
decreases traction. Lowering the rear ride height increases
traction, but decreases steering.

BINDING
Binding is the process of programming the receiver to recognize
the GUID (Globally Unique Identifier) code of a single specific
transmitter. The DX2E and SR201 are bound at the factory. If you
need to rebind, follow the instructions below.
1. With the receiver off, insert the bind plug into the BIND port
on the receiver.
2. Power the receiver through any other port. The orange LED
will flash continuously, indicating the receiver is in bind mode.
3. With the steering wheel and throttle trigger in the failsafe
positions, normally full brakes and straight steering (see the
Failsafe section on this page for more information), press and
hold the bind button and turn on the transmitter. The green
LED on the front of the transmitter will flash within three
seconds, indicating the transmitter is in bind mode.
4. Release the bind button when the green LED flashes.
Continue to hold the steering wheel and throttle trigger in the
failsafe positions until the LED on the receiver glows solid.
Bind Button
BIND
ST
N
TH
R
N
5. The LED on the receiver will glow solid when the transmitter
and receiver are bound.
6. Remove the bind plug and store it in a convenient place.
You must rebind when:
• Different failsafe positions are desired e.g., when throttle or
steering reversing has been changed.
• Changing receiver types e.g., changing from a DSM® receiver
to a DSM2® or Marine receiver.
• Binding the receiver to a different transmitter.
Some Spektrum receivers, like the SR3001, use a bind button
rather than a bind plug. The binding process is the same with this
receiver, however, instead of inserting the plug before powering up
the receiver, press and hold the bind button while powering up the
receiver to enter bind mode.
FAILSAFE
In the unlikely event that the radio link is lost during use, the
receiver will drive the servos to their preprogrammed failsafe
positions (normally full brakes and straight steering). If the receiver
is turned on prior to turning on the transmitter, the receiver will
enter failsafe mode, driving the servos to their preset failsafe
positions. When the transmitter is turned on, normal control is
resumed. Failsafe servo positions are set during binding (see
binding a receiver above).

number. Pack the Product securely using a shipping carton. Please
note that original boxes may be included, but are not designed to

hex is removed, the drive pin can fall out of the axle.
Bitte achten Sie bei der Radmontage darauf, dass die Radachse im Radmitnehmer sitzt und dass der
der Querstift nicht heraus fällt.
