Default Tutorial: How to install Racing Chrystal in Gen.3 Xmods

This tutorial shows you how to go from the pre-wired crystal on the new xmods to the plug.

Title says it all its a very simple procedure.

What your going to need.
-sodering iron
-screw driver
-old evo board
-new chassie



Unscrew the motor and cover and remove the back half of the car.




Desoder all the wires from the board. NOTE: important remeber there position, (i didnt as you can see if you have a shrap eye, i put the black and white wires backwards)



Remove the old chrystal




Take the old evo board and unscrew then remove the chrystal plug.





Cut a little from the two tabs on the chrystal tabs so the will sit flush with the board.



There is an existing hole on the new board where you should screw the plug onto. Then where the two tabs of the plug hit the silver pads where the chrystal was, put some soder to connect the two.



Reinstal the board making sure you put the wires where they belong.



Cut out the cover for esay access to the chrystal.



And tada!



The two silver skylines together!



If u provide the parts needed (unless otherwise specified) i will be willing to preform this mod for you for a low cost

Very nice tutorial. Might I suggest putting in an introduction in the top to explain the tut (going from the pre-wired crystal to the plug) for folks who are just surfin'/searchin
