I was driving my E-Maxx Brushless edition on a sandtrack here in the Netherlands, when suddenly alot of smoke came from under the hood.
So i ran too the truck and saw that my ESC had melted.
Afther unplugging my Lipos i took everthing home too investegate.
I noticed that my one of my Lipos(this lipo allways worked on my other cars) had died = 0.0volt, and the other one was just fine!
Afther carefully trying to see what wrong with the ESC i plug in another lipo and pulled it off a second later since the ESC gave huge lightning.
So what can i do now? Im kinda bummed since i had too save long for the truck.. (its $ 930,- new over here in the Netherlands, i bought a usted one (for $600,-) witch looked as new.)
2 Lipos in Series giving 6s total.
Full Stock (except for the upgrade drivelines).
Mamba Monster version: 1.32
I hope that this isn't the quality that traxxas will provide without some guarantee work.
A new mamba monster combo costes about $420,- so i don't want to buy that especially becauses who can tell me it wont happen again!
Thanks for reading,
