    Platinum Edition Lipo Problem

    Hi All,
    Last night received my Slash 4x4 PE here in Australia & changed the Traxxas plug for a Deans but when I connected my 7.4v 2s 3200maH Lipo nothing happened so I tried a NIMH & all was fine?

    Unfortunately I dont have another lipo to try until I receive my 2 x Integy 2S 7.4V 5000mAh from Tower Hobbies, but am I missing something that I need to do if I want to use a lipo, according to the manual it is set for lipos out of the box? I balanced & charged the lipo & it is showing 8.35v but still no power to ESC?

    TIA

    make sure it is in the lipo mode, if that still doesnt help, try resetting the ESC.

    Check the plug on the lipo and also confirm it has a charge. Perhaps a loose connection or reverse wired. The ESC's lipo/nickel mode selection has no effect on it turning on.
    Traxxas racing!

    Sounds like the Lipo is the problem...
    Break it, so you can upgrade it!
