I recently got my slash over the holidays and have been almost constantly reading online forums to get the most out of my truck. Everything had been going great with my truck until yesterday evening at the track. Throughout practice the truck was fine, a couple laps into the first heat the steering started becoming "glitchy." It would seem to stick at times when going through a corner and then not respond when landing off some jumps. The issue seems to get a little worse throughout the night. The folks at the track were helpful but we couldn't seem to figure it out. During the main the truck would also seem to lose throttle for a split second upon landing during the same time that there was no steering input.
I am running a 2s Lipo and have seen the truck on one occasion shut down after a hard crash with another car due to the low voltage detection. This was not occuring last night so I don't think that's the problem. I do have a new Spektrum DX3S on my truck, last night was my second time running it. I didn't have any issues the first time I ran with it but it could be a possibility. I have seen where a steering servo going bad could cause the esc to go into "safe mode." Would that cause an intermittent problem like this or just totally kill it unitl restarted?
I'm hoping someone here has a good troublshooting checklist to go through so I can start to eliminate some things.
