SO GUESS WHAT?!?!?!?!?!? I finally got my sidewinder 3 combo!!!!! I soldered the traxxas connector on and started to try to set it up. Looked up you tube video on how to do it. Took a while and a couple of tries. (Could that have started the problem?) then I finally got it. Started to drive it around and it was great for about 2 seconds. Then the motor stopped getting power. And it would not drive. The steering was fine the whole time but not the throttle. Anyone have any ideas what to do? I'm gonna call castle creations tomorrow morning and head to my LHS afterward if castle does not help.
