    That high pitched whine sound is a sure sign it's the ESC. If you take the body off and look when it does this you'll see that the green light on the ESC goes out when you pull the throttle, but only...

    They told me to send the ESC and motor back. No reason to send the whole car - it's an electronics issue.

    Slow flashing is LVC, rapid flashing is thermal shutdown. I've seen it before, it's a very fast flashing and you'll know the difference.

    It sounds like the batteries are not charged. 7.8v resting would be a bit low. They should be warm to the touch when they come off the charger.

    Your problem is not cogging and has nothing to do with the batteries, it's a defective ESC. Cogging is when the motor stutters at low throttle - you said yours will not move at all unless you push...

    Mine does this, tried on multiple 2s lipo packs and it's the same. I've seen a few other posts here with the exact same problem, it's almost certainly a defective ESC. Send it back.

    I got a little far into a creek once and it was completely submerged :) All you could see was the antenna above water. It was still moving along, just really slow so I decided to rescue it by hand.

    I didn't say it pulls 100 amps at all times, I said it can at times, under heavy load. I'd like to see the results of your data logger posted though.

    If they are available you should get the 40c, because they are only a few dollars more. They are usually out of stock a lot more than the 20 and 30c versions though... which should give you an idea...

    I got one from the first batch shipped out and I haven't had any issues with mine. It's rolling the dice though - no way to predict if your will be one affected. If the deal is good then go for it,...

    If you wire it between the battery and ESC rather than between the receiver and ESC, does the throttle pulse still work or do you need to rely on the LED?

    Read again :) I never said it draws 100 amps, I said "The XL5 in a 2wd slash is also rated at 100 amps ..."

    I was replying to the comment that the VXL motor is rated up to 100 amps and the...

    What about those that have had things break but are still happy with it :cool: I've owned enough RCs to know that things will break, even when made perfectly. It's almost unheard of for a company to...

    Actual testing will show that's incorrect though. The VXL system can and will draw more than 100 amps, even though it might be "rated" for 100 amps. If that was not the case, you could run the motor...

    Does it not move at all unless you push it, or do you mean it's stuttering at low throttle?

    Cogging is stuttering at low throttle. If it won't move at all without being pushed that is another...

    Sorry, but saying that 40c is not needed is bad advice. It's true that you can't trust that all brands are rated equally, but assuming their ratings are accurate 40c is much better than 20c.

    20c - 30c rating on the pack means 20c burst and 30c sustained.. they're not saying they could be rated somewhere between 20 and 30c. Most companies only list the burst rating, so the ******* 20c -...
