    ESC Problem

    Yet another problem... So when I plug my battery in and turn the car on, the red light on the Velineon ESC does not turn on or flash. When I hit the throttle, nothing happens. Steering works though. When I roll the car, there is some force from the motor making it harder to roll. When the car is off, it rolls perfectly smooth. What's going on?

    No, I don't have another brushless motor. The motor spins over fine, if I had another brushless ESC laying around I would plug it in to try, but I don't.

    The motor never overheated, I sent my original one back to Traxxas because of a rotor problem, but other than that the motor is fine. The only thing I can think of is the ESC is bad. The button was sticking too.
