Last night received my Slash 4x4 PE here in Australia & changed the Traxxas plug for a Deans but when I connected my 7.4v 2s 3200maH Lipo nothing happened so I tried a NIMH & all was fine?
Unfortunately I dont have another lipo to try until I receive my 2 x Integy 2S 7.4V 5000mAh from Tower Hobbies, but am I missing something that I need to do if I want to use a lipo, according to the manual it is set for lipos out of the box? I balanced & charged the lipo & it is showing 8.35v but still no power to ESC?
make sure it is in the lipo mode, if that still doesnt help, try resetting the ESC.
I second erevo09's response.
PLEASE do not PM me and immediately go offline :p
Check the plug on the lipo and also confirm it has a charge. Perhaps a loose connection or reverse wired. The ESC's lipo/nickel mode selection has no effect on it turning on.
Sounds like the Lipo is the problem...
Break it, so you can upgrade it!
