    Fix: Reverse not working properly, brakes not working

    On my 2nd run/charge, my reverse was slow and the brakes didn't work.

    So I called Traxxas support and the rep suggested I send in the car to get the ESC fixed. I thought I should take it to HobbyTown to get a second opinion. The employee called Traxxas support and they walked him through the reset/setup process, which took about 30 seconds. Viola, my problem was fixed.

    The instructions are in the Owner's Manual found here:
    http://www.traxxas.com/PDF-Library/7008_7108_manual.pdf

    Then on page 16 go to the "Setup Programming (Calibrating your ESC and transmitter)" and follow instructions.

    There you go.

    did you ever program it to begin with? Or were you just in a big rush to get it going so you did half of the instructions and just went out and ran your car

    You shouldn't have to program is to begin with, as per the manual:

    No, I didn't do any initial setup. It worked perfectly out of the box.
