    Unplug it... see if the issues go away.
    The servo is probably on its way out... and the cause of the weird electrical issues.
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.

    hmmm true

    if it is the problem this would be my second servo to not wake up. but on the 16th revo/slash forum there is a guy there saying that this lhs's customers are cumplaining of the tqi reciver so its got me woundering

    i have no other servo. so im going to ride it out till i get a e mail from traxxas about the tqi reciver. or if the servo does quit i will call traxxas an see if they give me a seconed servo(out of warrenty)

    thanks jimmy

    The servo should stay rather cool. Maybe the gears are missing teeth which causes it to try to remain its position without success which heats up the motor.
    Nobody is born with experience.
