    What reverse?

    Hi, any one ever had a fried velineon motor take out the reverse in there vxl-3s?
    CarGuy7a was correct in diagnosing my sick 3500. But then I put my fresh 3500 vel,on on have no reverse.
    No its not in race mode. Tried all three modes.
    Had reverse at first, then it attempted,or seemed like it wanted to reverse, now all gone with both motors.
    Since purchasing the pair is far cheaper,I Guss that's what ill do? Than keep the old one(esc) for racing only.
    But any input as to the possibility of the 3500 taking reverse out on the esc,would be nice.

    Yes I tried that to.But thank you, seemed like it was having trouble sensing neutral position, the light said it should be in reverse,oh well, its tired,guess when you by used you never know.
    Was going to keep it for racing,no need for reverse,but thought if i burnt another 3500, I would breaking more than the truck.
    Well live and $$$$$SPEND!! At least with new you know what you got.

    Must have been, just but new velineon esc and motor,runs great!
    funny thou,my pro line with a 19 tooth, seems to be slower out of the hole, than my traxxas stock trans, with a 21 tooth.
    In fact the pro line seems just plain slower!
    Must need a few more runs to loosen up,plus it 29 degrees out side,sure the fluid needs to warm up. didn't run it that long.
    both 86 tooth spurs.
