Default JR XS3 Pro - Install in Revo Help?

Hello, Please excuse my ignorance and maybe give my some directions and or some options. I read through the manual and could find much. Only operation info. I'am mechanically inclined, just needa little jump start on this one.

I recently purchased your new JR XS3 Pro Synth Pistol, 2 Servos for my Traxass Revo.

How do most people install this in their revo? I not quite sure on the insulation or my options. Do I remove all the electronics presently in the Revo? Can't I use only the 310 receiver in the truck for now and keep the stock servos, batt, etc.? I tried that but the plugs from the stock servos don't fit in the JR 310 receiver. I would like to use the JR servos but I noticed the revo requires 2 steering servos and I only have one?

Please help. I'm dieing to start using my new controller for my Revo.

I don't know what kind of radio is in the revo, but when I switched from my RTR futaba radio to my XS3, i had to cut the little tabs on the servo leads off to get it to fit in my JR receiver. Works fine. I just trimmed them off with side cutters.

I think for steering, you will probably want to either stick with the stock servos, or buy a second JR servo to match the nicer one you got with your radio.

You could switch the throttle servo to the new JR one, it's probably an upgrade.
