There was a similar thread that has some other innovative solutions:
try checking inside the transmission. then inside the differentials.

I believe the the flashing red light is the LVC being triggered.
Do you have the ESC wired with 1 battery lead or 2 leads?
If you really are using a single 3S battery, then perhaps re-program the...
Using the LVA i mounted it inside the waterproof Rx box from the E-Maxx. The holes of the Rx box line up perfectly with the body mount posts. I siliconed the screw holes to help with the...
Both orange can 1/8 motors:
Tacon Brushless Motor LBP4074/2.5Y-2000KV For 1/8th Buggy/Monster Truck

Hobbywing 150A ESC with Tacon motors.
Yes, I run this setup on my Emaxx and the 2150kv on my Erevo. The Erevo has been running this for almost 2 seasons on 6s. The Emaxx on the first season on 6s. I highly recommend this setup as an...
Did you install the right parts in the diff? 5382X (Diff gear set- 'inside') and 5379X (pinion gear- 'outside') kinda look the same, but the 79X I believe is longer. idk..?
Brushless conversion with lipos.
Cheapest investment can be:
ESC/Motor combos (Hobbywing/Tacon) for $150-$200.
Lipos start around $30 each for 2S, 5000mah.
Lipo chargers can be found for $40.
lol. the singe-y, burny is from Dremelling off the gear.. that kind of legit carnage would be cool, although i hesitate to think what the rest of the tranny would have looked like. :eek:
Sheared the pin that holds the primary fwd gear on the primary shaft. Had to Dremel the gear off.. :thumbdown:
Is this common at all? Any preventative suggestions? Thanks!
I had this issue as well. could be a loose/bad connection with the steering servo.
a weak/bad battery could also be the culprit.
The Hobbywing EZRUN-WP-SC8 (120A) is waterproof. There's a thread in the E-Maxx section:
Pair that up with a Hobbywing or...
Found this interesting. I appreciate the 'water-displacing' properties of WD-40, but not the dust-attraction.
I lowered the body, instead of the wing. :)
I'm only running the CVD's and extended cups on P2's. I have no experience with the LT's and CVD's.
The CVD instructions say:
• This kit is not for use with the Revo long travel rocker set. ...

I picked up a new-to-me Summit and am new to the Summit as a whole.
Question: with the diffs unlocked, if I push/pull with my hands, is the truck supposed to be able to roll forwards...
check the rotor in the motor. magnets could be starting to slip as a result from the combo of high temps, a seized center bearing, landings, and crashes. good luck.
Canadian company. Great prices.
i called traxxas cs and they suggested jb weld. i hear loctite (green) may work too.
fortunate for me traxxas is replacing my one month old motor that did this... :cool:
since this is happening...
wait. in series, does 2 x 5000mah 20c 2s lipos = 200 amps? as in 2 batteries?
thanks. i'm trying to understand this stuff for the first time too. :cool:
i agree with slash4wd, this has happened to me before. the driveline bearings are prone to failing if exposed to water and/or mud (and not serviced). they seize up and melt the bearing adapter which...
