Default Newbie with Eagle Mach Dozer question.

Hello Everyone,
Well after giving it a lot of thought I decided to pull the trigger on the Eagle Machinery JD-98 bulldozer w/sound. I received it about a month ago and have had the time to decal it, install the light kit, tighten all the 2mm screw, and Loctite all the track pins. All were recommendations made by fourm members before, I was a member. Is there any other recommendations before I start ripping up the dirt?
One other question. Do I have to remove all the red wires from the Bec's except for the one from the pump to power the Rx. Any ill effect from running the dozer with them all in place. That's the way I received it from Eagle. One power source to the receiver is what I have always known.
Here's a few pics of the dozer. Thanks in advance for your replies.

Our forums photo hosting storage is full & we aren't buying any more... there's oodles of free photo hosting sites on the net to use, some are even hot linking from facebook. Here's a great tutorial with screen shots on how to do it.

Yes, you are correct, only one power supply needed for the Rx. I could be wrong, but my thought is Multiple BEC's supplying the RX, (basically all connected together) could cause damage to electrical components.

Enjoy the Dozer

Yes pull the extra red wires. if there are more 1 esc that supply power to rx, they'll eventually let the smoke out of the escs since you're backfeeding power.

Billowing smoke and spraying molten solder from an esc is really cool, though i'd suggest you avoid it. Even better if you run lipo and the battery goes runaway...
