Default Hydraulic Hood for Revo 3.3, Saw it in a youtube video that rcuniverse put up want to know how to do

Hey guys I've been trying to figure out this project here since I saw this video. I want to raise and lower the hood of my car just like alot of these guys do, does anybody know how to do that? I've been looking at linear actuators but you need 12v power supply and they are kind of large on the vehicle. I was thinking about on to make a servo work with basically tie rod arms but if you guys know how to do it, it would be greatly appreciated? By the way I have a revo 3.3. Maybe you guys know how to do it differently.

Here is the link to the video that RCUniverse had uploaded to youtube. I'd really like to know how to do it? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bkmaByQrCTA

Thanks in advance for anybody who might be able to help me.

I've never tried anything like this myself, but you want to look into retractable landing gear actuators.

Good luck

I think it's done using a servo.
