    1/ Plug your wall charger into a wall socket outlet
    2/ Connect the 7.2V battery into the wall charger as indicated. Do not force the connection - they only connect one way!
    3/ The indicator on the wall charger will go Red to indicate that the 7.2V battery is charging.
    4/ The indicator light on the wall charger will turn off when the battery is fully charged. (1.5 - 2 hours) Do not leave unattended.
    5/ Disconnect battery from charger after charge is complete.
    - You must fully charge your 7.2V battery before first use.
    - Do not leave 7.2V battery and charger unattended while charging.

    LiteHawk IGNITER - Installing 7.2V Battery

    4/ Ensure the battery wires and connector are facing away from the inside of the vehicle. Reattach battery hold down. Connect the battery to the other connector. (Don’t force it, they only go one way.)

    LiteHawk IGNITER - Wheel / Tire Swap

    • Remove hex nut. 
    • Place new rubber wheel on new plastic rim. Use a small amount of model glue around the edge of the tire where it meets the rim . This will keep the rim from sliding inside the wheel. 
    • Remove the old wheel and tire. Replace with new one. Tighten hex nut.
    LiteHawk IGNITER - Shock Pre Load
    • On the shocks of the Igniter you will see little rings right above the spring at the top of the shock. Also, in the bag that the manual is in, is included extra rings. These are called "shock preload clips". They control the ride height of your truck, as seen here. Having the clips installed, gives to more suspension travel, over rough terrain etc, and will lessen bottoming out.
    • This picture shows ride height with clips installed. 
    • This one shows with removed. To remove clips, pull small nub that is on the clip. 
    • To install, pull down the spring collar at the top of the spring. Snap on clip, and release the collar.
    LiteHawk IGNITER - Shock Replacement
    • To replace shocks, locate the two mounting points of the shocks. One upper, one lower. 
    • Pop the shocks off the mounting nubs. Reverse the procedure to re install, popping them back onto the mounting points.

    • One end of your dogbone fits into the steering knuckle or the rear wheel hub at the wheel, and the other end fits into the differential cup at the gear case. 
    • They just slide out..if you are putting new ones in, make sure that you lightly grease the inner part of the cup.
