Hello, I was just wondering, I've been reading in some forums that you can fit the 2.4 conversion set for a Mini-Z AWD on a Mini-Z Monster if you just lengthened the wires for the servo. Now I was just wondering if anyone could tell me if this is true?
Thanks /Chris

Its almost that easy...I'd suggest an MR03 board (RA-22) to avoid the reverse delay of the RA-18 board found in mr02-AWD cars

It's a pretty easy conversion,tho you will have to mod the gearbox internals slightly too,to make room for the extra pot wire.

It's even easier now. You can buy a MZM 2.4 board, gearbox internals, and PCB cover. That's what I did almost a year ago.

I don't have the part numbers anymore, but you can check out the MZM ASF here:

You have to dig around the website to find the part info from the schematics. The new board even has better FETs.

Great upgrade.

or you could sell the old monster chassis and buy the newer 2.4asf chassis...

ok, this is a relatively old thread but I thought it;'d be best to post this question here.

What's the difference between a servo/steering box for the AM and the 2.4GHz?

I bought a rolling chassis that was originally AM and I got some AM boards lying around. It had some broken pieces, one of which is the steering box upper suspension mount. TinyRC only has the 2.4GHz box left so I'm wondering if it'll fit AM servo parts or not. please let me know!

Thanks

PS: like I said, I'm strapped for cash, so don't go suggesting I buy a 2.4GHz board cuz it's better and all.
