Ok guys I do not have an XO-1 but I have an XO-1 1717 and ESC directly from one that is in another vehicle and I started it up for the first time tonight and am having problems. Not sure what it is. I am using a Traxxas TQI Link setup as well with an ipod.
So hook the freshly charged 3s Lipos up. Run the plugin from the ESC to Channel 2 of the RX
Run the plugin from a Hitec 7955TG to Channel 1 of the RX
Power it on and beeps like it should. I then am able to throttle it and punch it. But the problem starts up when I start turning the steering wheel. If I grab the wheel and turn it back and forth fast, for some reason the vehicle begins to get throttle for a second but then stop. I am looking right at the pinion and it begins to spin at times for about a second or 2 and then stops. This is happening while I have the vehicle sitting up with its wheels off the ground and I am not giving it any throttle, but somehow it is thinking I am and then making the motor go.
