Intermittent problem with reverse: solved
Just wanted to pass this on. After running my Summit in water/mud I started having problems with reverse. I could move the throttle control all the way forward several times with no response and then suddenly reverse would engage. I cleaned the truck, recharged the batteries and was still having the problem with reverse. Finally I blew out the motor with compressed air and a bunch of grass came shooting out. After that reverse was fine.
Not really sure what the explanation is behind this…
I notice this too. My emaxx's evx2 does the same. I notice it happens when she's covered in snow or realy wet and dirty. I'll hit forward two or three times and then it will go in reverse. When dry I hit brake then forward one more time and everything would be ok again.
