Ok so there's not a Traxxas electronics page on the forum so I will just post it here since it pertains to my slash.
I have been through 4 Traxxas VXL-3 speed controls in the last year, with the most recent being the newest waterproof version. They have all gone bad on me after a couple months of use. They lose reverse, start going into thermal shutdown right away(even when room temp), and when they do work for the first 30 seconds or so the power is very restricted. I have even smoked a NIMH 8.4. I have tried using a different motor after the problem arises but once it looses reverse the thing never works right again.
Traxxas has warrantied the first 3 but the newest version (waterproof) I though would have maybe corrected this problem.
Has anyone else had this issue? I am really tires of sending these thing back to Traxxas!!!!!!!!!
