Hey, I have a faily new e-revo. Less then 1 month.
I have a 4 or 5 runs on it with 3000mah 7.4v NIMH cells...
Then I got my MaxAmps 2s Lipo 8000Mah batteries and 2c Novak smart stop cut off.
I made an adapter harness from the ESC to one battery that hooks up the Novak smart stop. (copied a harness I seen on here for the 2s smart stop)
I had a few runs with the Maxamps batteries now it wont move.
The last time I drove it it smelled kind of funny? Like warm electronics/smelly oil of some kind. I brought the truck inside and charged the batteries, went to use it again and it wont move.
I tried re-programming the ESC, I tried re-programming the Smart stop.
I tried removing the smart stop, I tried reprogramming the ESC after removing the smart stop. I tried another receiver... still the steering works, but no throttle.
All times the steering works but there is no attempt at the motors to move or work.
I emailed Traxxas technical support and they said when that condition occurs (steering works but not the throttle) the ESC needs to be re-programmed.
I have tried everything I can think of, this will not go!
I'm planning on sending traxxas another email tomorrow to find out what to do.
