I just had a new esc put in about 2 weeks ago or less, it wasnt used very much since then,maybe once or twice. It was working fine, i had it out and it just quit, like the transmitter wasnt connecting with the receiver...i checked it and everything, and nothing worked, so i left it and was gonna go take it to the shop, tried it a day after letting it set, and it worked.... weird, the guy said it mustve been a glitch. any ways, now when i use it, it doesnt have as much speed... if i pin the throttle from take off, it will "quiver" for lack of better words. but if i take off slow, it will go, but not near as fast as it should. im running 2 traxxas series 1 batteries in parallell, for the longer run time. all the batteries are charged, i put new batteries in the transmitter, and still the same. i tried resetting the esc, still the same. i took the cover off over the sput gears, all the teeth are fine, and theres nothing stuck in there. If you barely hold the rear tires and hit the throttle, it just "qwivers" and the tires wont spin...I dont want to have to send it away to traxxas because im in canada and it would be like 4 weeks, is there anything i can do from home?
also, the steering is getting weird, it seems like it has alot of play back and forth, and the servo doesnt have enough power to cut the wheels unless they are spinning, when im crawling with it and stuff. should i add another servo? someone told me the spring may have been overloaded. how would i check this? and can i fix it or do i have to buy a new servo? will the dual servo's make a big difference?
and help would be greatly appreciated guys, thanks
