    ESC Problems....NEED HELP.

    I have a Traxxas SLash 2WD model number 5807. It has the VXL 3s ESC. I plugged in the battery and turned the contoler on, then the car. Set the car down and hit the throttle once and it lurched forward and then lost all power to the ESC. Does this usually mean that the ESC has gone bad???

    Problem solved. I found a screw that broke loose from the gray chassis and was sitting in the transmitter link box right ontop of open plugs.

    Yeah I must have taken a big enough hit that it broke 1 of the 2 screws that hold the waterproof box to the chassis and the one screw that broke loose ended up ontop of exposed plug ports. I was happy thats all it was!
