    Getting now power to motor - VXL system

    Just picked up an rc on craigslist for dirt cheap. Slash vxl raptor edition. The guy said the ECS was bad, but clearly that's not the case. It's got the VXL system with a associated 2.4 XP3-ss radio and reciever. When turned on, steering works and i've got a solid green light on the esc. No power at all to the motor. The guy said he was running it and it just quit. It's hooked up to a 2S lipo. I'm guessing it could be the motor, but was wondering if there's any tests or other problems known before I buy a new motor. Thanks

    touch 2 of the 3 motor wires directly to the battery leads. The motor should jump and stutter. Do you have access to another motor or esc?

    Did you recalibrate the esc to the radio???

    Wow, cannot believe I didn't start out with doing this. I just had to recalibrate it. I just scored big on this truck. Works great.
