ZK2

Ha! I also got mine fron Antics
Just remember, the standard RX/ESC combo has no brakes!!!
I submitted a bearing list to "ForBigBoys" a UK Ebay seller and now they make up bearing kits for the ZK-2

I do have video, mostly shot at 640x480, so a little too big to post, I will do some 320x240 video shots when I have time.

Once again I will express my delight with this little truck, it's awesome for the price..

ZK2

The standard Servo does have a Servo saver - I stripped my servo gears after a major tumble and replaced it with a HS81MG

The distributors (CML I think) will carry spares, not on the Antics database yet, but I have been assured that if (or should) you need parts they are available

If you know the Mini-T well (I do not), take a close look at the ZK2. It shares a few parts with the Mini-T in my opinion.
It also shares a lot of parts with the RC18T, servo, ball studs, ball-caps, shock caps, spring holders, motor...

Oh, either a Mini-T Beetle or ProLine HMMV bodyshell....

Any more plans? Yup: Road orientated rubber, higher gearing, servo saver and to drive it like I stole it.
For me, this is the ultimate care free basher. I do own a few Micro scale cars (see my gallery) but this one is by far the most fun I have had with a transmitter in my hand in ages

ESC/receiver replacement for the zk2

My all in one esc/receiver died on me and I can not find a dealer who sells a replacement. Anyone no where I might be able to get one? If not, what could I do to get me back up and running? What would I need? Thanks, Doug

You can go with a seperate RX and ESC if you wish.......this way you can place the electronics in the best possible locations.

On the servo how many wires are attached to the plug.....the only reason i ask because i know some servo's use 4, but if you see a three.....red, black, and white then you can use any RX that will work with your radio....if your using AM then a AM rx will work.....What motor are you using....if you want something with a small footprint then you can go with a Spy (version 2---it will say on the box)


And welcome to YM man.

if its a 27mhz radio you could look on ebay for take-out losi mini-t or thunder tiger rx/esc combo's

I know I sold my stock losi mini-t gear for like 30 bucks on ebay after I got it

Then if you want true placement of the electronics you can go with the rx and a esc....or if your trying to save some money then go for the all in one unit as Blind suggested.

ZK2 Servos

The ZK2's standard servo is the same as that used in the RC18T, so it is a "standard" servo that can be connected to any standard RX via the 3-Pin connector

burtondr, Mondo just answered your question and also mine....I would definitely go with the seperate electronics.......That way if you burn one up you wont have to replace the whole shibang.
