Revo 3.3 Acting Up
My revo 3.3 is acting very odd.
Whenever I start it and drive it around it will go for about 5 seconds it will just stop and the remote won't work at all. Also whenever I put it in reverse I have to give it a little push backwards to actually go. Another thing-whenever I pick it up or flip it it floors it-is that normal?
Everything on it is stock
Please help me :((
Definitely sounds like a reciever problem. You've got the classic symptoms: No response, acts wild when flipped over...yeeeeeep. You're going to have to tear that reciever out and take a look.
What would I be looking for? What are some common problems?
I just completely switched to a new remote. This problem is still occuring.
You know how when you start a revo with the controller off and there's just a red light? I'll be driving and that will happen and it will just not work.
Its your receiver, not your controller. You have to take the radio box cover off and inspect the reciever. Maybe cut wires?
Also did you get the truck wet at all?
I replaced the receiver with the controller.
Oh, okay. Then check all your wires for fraying or cuts.
The truck is causing interference. Check for metal on metal parts that could be rattling together.
That's the first thing to do. When you said it will just stop did you mean the engine stops or the truck won't drive?
The rear engine bearing may have gotten so bad it won't stay running and it also screws up the radio system.
The truck just won't drive.
The function light is just red.
Something is causing it to go into failsafe mode, like a rattle or bad engine bearing.
if you have an opti drive in your car.. thats your problem.. take it out...
