    Slash engages full throttle when signal is lost.

    Hello everyone the last time I drove my slash it took off from me because my transmitter died. Thankgod I was able to kick it over before it did damage to it or anything around it. It is a slash brushless and I though it had a auto shut off but maybe it dosnt. What can I do to stop this from happening again.

    Get rid of that asap! Go with a 2.4GHz radio.

    You will also have longer range with that 2.4GHz as well.
    Never trust a fart.

    I have had no problem with this transmitter the only way I would replace it is if its leading to this auto shut off not working. I have a tqi but I rather not spend money buying a new reciever.

    It's possible for other things to interfere on the 27mhz signal. It's easy to say just go 2.4Ghz and I agree that 2.4 makes interference a non-issue but I'll agree with the poster that you can have great range on a 27 MHz setup. Two of my trucks are 2.4 and one is still 27 but they can all go at least 1/4 mile and not lose range.
    What broke, uh, needs upgrading now?

    Its not interference im worring about if it was that the wheels would twitch. What im worring about is every single time it gets disconnected the esc goes full throttle.

    The 2.4ghz have built in fail safes to prevent that
