    Red light?

    When I turn the car on the esc is green, then when I turn the controller on it turns to a barely lit flashing res color

    Yup. Quite common...
    I suggest upgrading.
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.

    What do you currently have?

    I have a BlueBird 390... cost about $30, all metal gears, 98%+ drop in.

    Absolute fastest motor is going to be a Neu... 50togo has experimented with a few.
    MMP is the ESC he used, I believe.

    With the neu motor you have big block power in the size of a small block and the motor and esc will run cool!
    How fast do you want to go!
    I run the neu 1110 1/y and mmp esc. Takes a few mods to get it running you will need to shorten the shaft and grind a slot for the pinion screw to sit but you would be happy with the power and handling. Nothing else really compares http://www.espritmodel.com/neu-1110-...es-motors.aspx

    Well I'm looking for more of a plug and play, but I will keep that into consideration.


    An off topic question, buddy of mine has the same car and his esc went out. What would be a cheap replacement that would work with the stock motor
