    Help, changed chassis and lost speed sensor.

    Last week I changed the chassis after a header into a solid object cracked it, and today was the first time out (race day) and when I turned on the Traxxas Link I realized that I have voltage and temperature but not the speed. What could I have done to cause the speed sensor to stop functioning? I noticed no cut or broken wires. Everything appears to look normal. I've attached a video to further demonstrate the condition and to let you look at the truck in case I'm just not seeing the obvious.

    I'll pull it apart and look for it and let you know. Is it something that in the accident, it can become dislodged?

    I believe yes, as it just slip tight in place on in the holder... if they don't line up, the magnet wont trigger the sensor! You can try a little drop of superglue to keep it in place!
