Default Traxxas EX Water Cooling

New to hobby...Redoing a used traxxas ex in which the boots where shot, hence Iwas taking on water in the electronics box...Not good...(thankfully, Ikept going in circles closer to shore after my servo said bye bye)

Anyway..I've got new servo and boots, however, Iam having a devil of a time refeeding the water cooling hoses (looks like air hose to a fish tank) back through the hole....Is there a trick to this? I don't think Ineed to drill larger holes as someone got em through the first time. Amazing how Iget stopped by the simplest of things.

Maybe try cutting the end of the tubing on an angle to a point and you should be able to grap it with needle nose pliars through the hole.
I found it harder to install the rubber boots without tearing, I ended up tieing the end of a string to the boot to feed it through.

WOW!!! That worked like a charm...Too easy!!!

With the rubber boots, what did you do? Heavy knot and run the string through? Ican imagine that's a pain...

Awesome glad that worked for you.
For the boots, I tied a string to the tip of the small end, greased them up and pulled really gently while trying to push from the back with something dull.
I still ended up tearing one when I did it.
Good luck
