I do not like working on engines. My indoor stuff is MTH with DCS, which comes RTR which I love, but now I want to go to battery power for outdoors.

I have an Aristo E-8. It is my understading that with the new TE 2.4 mhz, I will be able to just plug in a receiver and plug in a sound card (P5?), and that is all there is to it. I all ready have a battery car I made.
There is no wiring involved in the engine, correct>

There is one socket.

The TE will plug into the socket.

The sound is separate, and the TE must be wired to the sound card manually.

The only complete sound and motor plug and play solution is the QSI.

Just call me quick draw!

The connections between the TE and the Sound board is for triggers, but you will also need to connect the sound board to the motor leads too, to get power to the sound board.
