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.

ECX Boost 1/10-scale Electric Buggy Spektrum™ DX2E Transmitter AA (4) Batteries DYN4113 2A Peak Battery Charger Dynamite® Speedpack™ 7.2V Ni-MH battery (DYN1050EC) ® ® 3 ST. TRIM R POWE ST. RATE 4 TH. TRIM 1 2 5 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. CHARGING WARNINGS WARNING: Failure to exercise caution while using this product and comply with the following warnings could result in product malfunction, electrical issues, excessive heat, FIRE, and ultimately injury and property damage. • Read all safety precautions and literature prior to use of this product. • Never leave the battery and charger unattended during use. • Never allow children under 14 years of age to charge battery packs. • Never attempt to charge dead or damaged batteries. • Never charge a battery if the cable has been pinched or shorted. • Never allow batteries or charger to come into contact with moisture at any time. • Never charge batteries in extremely hot or cold places (recommended between 50–80°F (10–26°C)) or place in direct sunlight. • Always use only Ni-MH rechargeable batteries. This charger cannot charge batteries such as “heavy duty”, “alkaline”, “mercury” or “lithium” battery. • Always connect to the charger correctly. • Always disconnect the battery and charger after charging and let them cool between charges. • Always inspect the battery before charging. • Always terminate all processes and contact Horizon Hobby if the product malfunctions. • Always make sure you know the specifications of the battery to be charged or discharged to ensure it meets the requirements of this charger. • Always constantly monitor the temperature of the battery pack while charging. • Always end the charging process if the charger or battery becomes hot to the touch or starts to change form during the charge process. • Always charge in a well ventilated area. EN INSTALLING TRANSMITTER BATTERIES We recommend using only alkaline AA batteries in the transmitter, however, it is possible to use rechargeable NiMH batteries. CAUTION: If using rechargeable batteries, charge only rechargeable batteries. Charging non-rechargeable batteries may cause the batteries to burst, resulting in injury to persons and/or damage to property. 1. Slide the panel open on the bottom of the transmitter. 2. Obey the battery plus (+) and minus (-) diagram in the transmitter to install 4 AA batteries. 3. Slide the panel closed. • NEVER install damaged batteries, batteries of mixed types or batteries of different ages in the transmitter. Remove exhausted batteries. • NEVER store the transmitter with batteries installed. TRANSMITTER BATTERY SAFETY PRECAUTIONS • Never install damaged batteries. • Never install batteries of mixed types or of different ages in the transmitter. • Always remove exhausted batteries. • Always remove batteries before storing the transmitter. • Low battery power can result in loss of control of the RC vehicle. REMOVING THE VEHICLE BODY INSTALLING THE BATTERY IN THE VEHICLE 1. Turn the battery clips (A) clockwise to remove the battery strap (B). 2. Install a fully charged battery. 3. Install the battery strap. 4. Turn the battery clips counterclockwise to secure the battery strap.

Do a test of the transmitter’s control of the vehicle with the vehicle’s wheels off the ground. 4. Start driving slowly, and, if the vehicle does not go straight, adjust the steering trim dial on the transmitter. IMPORTANT: Seat the motor brushes by driving smoothly on a ﬂat surface during use of the ﬁrst battery charge. Properly seating the motor brushes will increase the life and performance of the motor. INSTALLING THE VEHICLE BODY boost 7 EN 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. WHEN YOU ARE FINISHED 1. Power off the Electronic Speed Control (ESC). 2. Disconnect the battery. 3. Power off the transmitter. ST. TRIM POWER TH. TRIM 5. Recharge the battery. 4. Remove the battery from the vehicle. MOTOR CARE • Seat the motor brushes by driving smoothly on a flat surface during use of the first battery charge. Failing to do so can greatly reduce motor performance and functional life. • Prolong motor life by preventing overheating conditions. Undue motor wear results from frequent turns, stops and 8 boost starts, pushing objects, driving in deep water and tall grass, and driving continuously up hill. • Over-temperature protection is installed on the ESC to prevent circuit damage, but cannot protect the motor from driving against heavy resistance. EN 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. B C A 3. Push the gears together while tightening the motor screws. 4. Rotate the gears to remove the paper. The gearing should move a small amount. 5. Reinstall the gear cover. ELECTRONIC SPEED CONTROL (ESC) NOTICE: The ESC (DYN4925WP) is compatible with NiCd and NiMH batteries only. Not for use with LiPo or LiFe batteries. Programming: This is an auotprogramming ESC. The ESC autoprograms each time the vehicle is turned on.

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.

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).
