INTEGRATED SELF RECOVERY SYSTEM INSTALL GUIDE - TRAXXAS TRX4
TRAXXAS TRX-4 INSTALL GUIDE:
Please note: If you are running aftermarket or different bumper mounts than shown you will either need to switch to this style or modify your current bumper mounts to work with this kit. Some modifications may be required to make this kit work for your vehicle. There are some bumper recommendations at the bottom of this page.
Mounting the Pulley
Install the pulley into the factory hole in the bumper mount as shown.
Make sure to not over-tighten the screw so that the pulley spins freely. You will be replacing the factory pin screw with the included pulley screw to secure the bumper.
Mounting the Shoulder Screw
Replace the rear servo mounting screw with the shoulder screw as shown. It may be easier to slide the loop end over the hole first and then install the shoulder screw to secure it.
Modifying the Bumper Mount
You will need to remove the plastic winch from the top of the bumper if you have one so the line has room to go through the fairlead.
The loop end of the kinetic strap should fit through the fairlead. if it is tight you can squeeze it with a pair of pliers. If required you can remove the hook and re-install as outlined at the bottom of this page.
The line will feed through the bumper, along the side of the battery, around the back pulley then back up to the front as shown. Loop it over the rear pulley last after the hook is installed to make installation easier if it was removed.
IF YOU NEED TO REMOVE THE MULTI HOOK TO INSTALL:
You will need to use a lighter to melt the end of the kinetic line and then re-tie the figure 8 knot to secure the multi anchor back onto the end of the line as shown below. You MUST use a figure 8 knot in this location as it is designed to tighten under load.
Here are some bumpers we have found to work well with our Integrated Self Recovery System:
