Hello everyone, as I mentioned I'm not sure if my nero has the diff brain option or not since I found it in a garage sell. Is there anyway to tell without turning it on and turning the dial on the remote? I also have the original remote.

Any help is appreciated, I'm currently charging some 3s batteries to put them in and test drive this baby.

Check for small red Servo at each diff.

Nice find at a yard sale. What is the condition and price you paid out of curiosity?

the easiest way i ID brain-diff vs a non brain-diff is the body. brain-diff had blue bodies and non brain-diff were green. that's not always the case though, the previous owner may have changed bodies.

second easiest is pull the body, look down at it from the top and look for this wire. I circled it in red. it's the servo wire for the rear diff. if you look closer throughout the truck, you'll notice three of these wires; one to each servo. If they're no there it's a non diff-brain nero_id.jpg


either way brain-diff vs non brain-diff, they're still a blast. you could always add the brain-diff.

i'm curios too, what condition is it in? what you pay?

The Original remote has a dial on it that shows which diff you can lock. There are 4 conversions. Easiest way to determine if it’s a Brain diff. image.jpg

^ non-diff brain models came with that same remote. the dial just did absolutely nothing since they had no diff brain.

diff brain was an add-on option for the non-diff brain models. you just had to purchase the servos and diff-brain unit separately, install, and bind to the remote. so having that dial on the remote doesn't necessarily distinguish a diff brain vs a non-diff brain

open up the receiver box and see if there is a brain diff board that the wires go to each diff.
