    ESC going to LVP early?

    About every other time I run my slash, I will hit low voltage protection way too early. I have an 8400mah (no idea why I went so big) 3s, and will go into lvp after 5 min or so sometimes. I can turn it off and back on and keep running after that, just wondering if anyone else has seen this.

    It's very common. What is happening is your motor is drawing alot of amps and when you really get on the throttle it's causing a temporary voltage drop that flips the cutoff. You have several choices. One...get an exernal lvc..novac makes one and turn off the one on the velineon.two...you can just turn it off and just be careful. Three...you can try to go go down in your pinion to prevent too mucb amp draw.

    Solid advice, thank you. I think i will just deal with it for now since all i do is bash. But if i start looking into racing I'll have to take care of it.
