    problems

    i have a brushless stampede(2wd) with a tacon motor on it, i got it in a trade so im not sure whats all been done to it or what needs to be done to it but i have fixed a few problems and bought a few pieces for it. my ESC is now messing up and wont turn on and when i do get it to turn on itll go about 30 yards and then turn itself off. i might get it back on then itll turn off in 15 feet. today i said screw it and just put it up.

    it has a velineon vxl-3s esc on it, my battery is a 8.4v nimh by venom with a green tacon motor(not sure on which motor) im sure there is stuff this truck needs done but right now i just want it to work. any help would be great

    does it just turn off by itself or does it just stop moving. make sure your lvd is disabled when using nimh batteries.

    Its on low voltage cut off well thats what it sounds like to me because you're using a nimh and any esc with low voltage cut off if it not set to no cut off you can run the nimh look into that
