So, 5 days into owning my new Stampede VXL 4x4 I seem to be encountering more questions or concerns than enjoyment...
When I goose the throttle, from a dead stop or while running, this thing just shoots off to the right or left seemingly at random. I have not done enough driving yet to narrow it down to one direction or the other, but it seems to be more to the right.
It's bad... it will almost go from one side of the road to the other and w/o correction by me, will end up crashing and burning.
I don't know if this is normal, but it surely makes high speed running not that fun.
I also don't know if I am running good enough LIPO's and that could be contributing to this and the seemingly high motor temperatures. I have some 5000 mah, 20C 2S lipos. They were not cheap, so I figured they would be ok...
After 10 minutes the motor is too hot to touch for more than a second.
Wishing I had stuck to my original purchase of a brushed e-maxx.
