Before I do kick was pretty too easy to install. The directions are kind of weird but I didn't really go by the directions because I added a different motor setup so I had to run a dual mosfit fit.
While the instructions could be a little better, the kit worked exactly as advertised. I used it in a knock-off Stryfe body and it was a phenomenal drop-in kit. Took my plain-Jane knock off mechanical pusher to a full auto monster. Couldn't be happier!
It was great but it sometimes doesn’t work well with nimh battery’s but I haven’t tested a lipo. Overall it is a good product.(lots of fun)
I’ve seen a lot of reviews trashing how hard this is to install, on many platforms. I’m here to say that it’s not that bad. Now I wouldn’t say that you should install this if you have no soldering experience. If it’s your first time working with wires and things I’d recommend the xsw kit. It doesn’t gave the board and if you’re skills aren’t up to par, you could apply too much heat and end up melting your parts. With that being said, workers kit comes with some instructions, that while may be a bit jarring at first glance, can still be a big help. It comes with a Stryfe side and a sword fish side to the instructions and they also include a full wire diagram. I made sure to follow it, only referencing the main instructions to make sure part placement was correct. If you take your time, and follow the diagram, you will be just fine. Don’t be afraid to mess something up. Part of modding is tweaking and tinkering until it’s the way you like it. Don’t be afraid to mess something up, parts can be replaced and material can be added back.
1st off, there is always issues with ambitious builds. This kit is drop in with skill required. I found difficulty getting the gear to engage the pusher arm teeth. After proper alignment, additional drilling to fasten the pusher motor base plate at the right alignment, it worked great. Then one of the switches began to move and not cut off circuit on the pusher arm. So that switch had a screw added so it wouldn't move out of place. This kit is solid when installed right. It also taught me a lot. I am going to be installing a 2nd one soon. This go around should be smoother.
