I toasted the stock ESC/RX in my Mini Mauler over a year ago, and that made me sad, so I bought a couple things to fix it up. Then I threw all that stuff in a box and forgot about it. Now; a year later; I found this project box, and I just had to finish it!

I bought a NanoDragon ESC/RX from Toy East for cheap; but it's a little bigger than the stock Mini Mauler ESC/RX. The MM is on the right, the NG is on the left.

So I put the new board in sideways and drilled a hole in one end of it and ran a screw through it into the chassis.
