The PunkRC Dig Switch is the easiest and more reliable way to add Dig to your MOA (Motors on Axles) truck.

The NEW Dig Switch 3D.
The 3D version is almost exactly like the 2+, except it can take Deans Ultra Plugs Connectors soldered right onto the unit.
The new 3D version is much like the original, but more reliable and powerful.
Higher current connectors to prevent burning out the circuit board if you arc a motor.
Run one motor shorting and the other freewheeling.
More Robust circuit design prevents higher receiver signals from burning out the unit.

The Dig Switch adds Dig Steering to Any Dual Motor Truck. When the Dig is turned on, it will cut power to the appropriate motor. When power is cut to a motor, the motor is SHORTED. This helps the motor lock into place. If you want a motor to freewheel instead of lock, desolder either bead of solder, marked with a "^" above the work "Dig" or "Switch" for Motor1 or Motor2 respectively

The Punk RC Dig Switch also features Surge Absorbers to protect burning of switch terminals. This problem leads to shortened life in many Servo Actuated "Dig-a-ma-jig" Dig Switches.
