    summit only goes half throttle forward and ful reverse after smartstop install 2s?

    installed a novak lvc 2s today and programmed it to my evx.2, i put two lipos in the summit and before i closed up receiver box with lvc in it i ran the titan off of the spur gear and it ran 50% faster in reverse with not a lot of forward? just wondering if anyone has come across this? fyi i also ran nimhs with same result.

    Lipos fully charged, esc not in training mode or anything like that? Throttle endpoints set correctly before installing the LVC/ havent altered the 50/50 - 70/30 switch?..

    Did you wire it properly to GROUND and 2S?





    Much easier to take 2S power off of the BEC side balance tap IMO. This is for a JST-XH balance tap plug:

    @hughes500bob, i took the esc connector out of channel 2 and plugged it into the novak circuit board and then plugged the supplied novak connector into channel 2. The red wire from the novak, I soldered onto the red + of the bec traxxas connector, as I did the same with the black wire of the novak to the "-" of the same (traxxas) connector . This was the traxxas connector with the red tape. You mentioned grounded properly, am i missing a ground?

    @at armyofdarkness, not in training mode ,i am in performance mode, i don't think the switch on transmitter was ever touched, but after i installed lvc, before I closed up rx box ? ran motor off of spur gear just to make sure it was going to cutout properly,and thats when i discovered that the titan had way more rpms in reverse then forward. also i disconnected bullets and reconnected them in different ways and still the same outcome. it runs like a turtle on wheels! haha!

    Sounds correct! Some how the throttle channel got reversed.

    Reprogram the ESC per the manual.
