    The motor is now making no noise at all.

    I didn't note what the ESC LED is showing before I made this post. I'll get it hooked back up with a battery and report back.

    Hey, guys! Just wanted to let you know that thanks to your input the ol' Son-Uva Digger is back up and running. It WAS the slipper clutch that needed adjusting. That was it. Thanks for keeping me...

    Up until yesterday I had the same issue. Thanks to the good folks on this board I got it figured out at $0! I thought it was the ESC too, but ends up all I needed to do was adjust the slipper...

    Hey, guys... thanks for the great response on this problem. In my troubleshooting, I had already checked the gear meshing and that was all good. I took the motor out (because I thought it WAS the...
  6. Help Troubleshooting: Son-Uva Digger won't go

    At first I thought my Son-Uva Digger had a burned out motor, but that's not it. With a fully charged battery, I can hear it pushing power (that high-pitched sound) when I hit the throttle, but it...

    I agree with Oaks. Maybe we can hold out hope that some of the cool feature they developed for the MJ models will be adopted into the classic Stampede or perhaps a new "related model" that will be...

    Yeah, this totally sucks. I'm sad that they made the decision to go with crappy RCs only rather than do both or just stick with Traxxas. All I know is that I'm VERY glad we bought our Son-Uva...

    SOLVED! It was the battery. So, I've now upgraded to a Venom 5000mah NiMh and I'm diggin' it! The truck runs full speed a LOT longer than before and, in my opinion, runs quite a bit faster too. ...

    Just overcame a similar problem. Ended up it was the battery. I would start with a new battery (I'd go ahead and get a 5000mah if you are running NiMh... it's been AWESOME in our Son-Uva Digger)...

    And THAT explains why I decided to go with this mod. Haven't had to push it that hard yet, but I'm glad it's there when I do!

    This sounds similar to a problem I've been having with the stock 7-cell. I thought I'd burned up the Titan, but that wasn't it. I'm curious to see what people say about this post.

    MJ for sure! The body styles are WAY cooler and the hand full of parts that separate it from a standard Pede are more than worth it. If you get tired of your stylized MJ body, just use the...

    I see your point rag6 and MrTLV, but the screws act more as posts as anytime the bumper takes impact, it "pistons" on the screws - it doesn't have the hard transfer of energy to the body like you...

    Slash bumper on MJ / Pede mod

    First, thanks to everyone who gave advice and input when I asked about putting a wide bumper on my Son-Uva Digger. I decided to put a stock Traxxas Slash 2WD bumper on... and I think it looks TIGHT!...

    OK, swapped motors and I got the same result. So, y'all think it's a bad battery? I don't have another one to test, but I've been wanting to pick up a second battery anyway. Could it be anything...
  17. Son-Uva Digger is SLUGGISH! Burned motor? Bad battery??

    OK, I have my suspicions on what is wrong but I wanted to bounce it off all my Stampede / MJ friends here on the board:

    My Son-Uva Digger has recently gotten REALLY sluggish. On new controller...

    I have figured out (with some kudos to Ramsey 77) that the Slash bumper on your Stampede / MJ is AWESOME! It works great. Bolt it straight on then you can take some 1 1/2" #6 machine screws and run...

    Oh, NOW I see this post where you removed the bumper part I just asked about. LOL! OK, so give me some scoop on how you modded the stock black Slash support to use. Or, is that a Pede bumper...

    OK, I went to a LHS when I was visiting my parents this weekend and had a guy look at my problem. It seems that the XL-5 ESC will sometimes, without reason or user error, switch modes. So, we...
