    I had this exact problem, as described above.
    In my case, the fix was to replace the transmitter batteries with ones I knew were good. Perhaps the failsafe is such that if the transmitter starts to...

    Just for kicks I tried re-calibrating the ESC per the instructions in the manual. Now it's suddenly sped up a bit. I guess I wasn't getting a true full throttle before.

    You might hear an occasional ticking noise but if you should not hear a constant noise and they should not be heating up. Mine were fighting each other out of the box, I had to adjust it.

    1) LEDs are rated primarily by current, not voltage. A limiting resistor, or a driver circuit, is almost always necessary when using LEDs. White LEDs typically have voltages above 3V, typically...

    Ride Height Adjustment nuts not turning?

    Is there some special trick to get these nuts to turn? Out of the box I cannot turn them at all, and when I try to force them, all I end up doing is loosening the shock caps. I've tried removing...

    In response to the above post, on the very low end the goat has a much...

    That sounds about right, somewhere between 15-20mph on a flat surface with GP3300's 6-cells is about what I'm seeing. In first gear it is about 5mph tops. Runtime, 25 minutes at least, maybe more.

    I agree, theory vs. practice, I'll settle for the latter. One can debate the solid axle vs. thing all day long and it won't get you anywhere in actual practice.

    Has anyone come up with a mod to stop this from happening? Basically a stick or something similar gets stuck between the A-arm and the axle, forcing me to stop the truck and remove it. Other times...

    If you see the other three you will understand the second one, it's part of a series. Personally I didn't buy the summit to run it on pavement or any kind of 'prepared ground' but people always ask...

    No idea of the actual temp since I don't have a temp gun or any other way of measuring it. I just use the 1-second rule, typically a few times throughout each run, and it has never gotten that hot. ...
