    Hi, I'm new here with a problem

    I guess my problem is what brought me here so hello to all :-)

    I have a rustler that has been a dream to beat up for the past 7 years, I just inherited a 1\10 scale Summit and have had ghost issues with it for the past 5 days and have NO idea how to diagnose it.

    I reset the transmitter and went through the resetting of the car but I never see the light go green. The receiver is always humming and the wheels start running without me even touching the remote (it's on) then everything dies. It will run successfully for about 3 minutes then just die. Would calling Traxxas help me? I'm leary of my local hobby shop as they suck.

    Hmmm. Are you sure the receiver is humming? Could it be the servos humming? More likely. I would lean towards you having a servo that is dying. Failing servos can cause all kinds of electronic faults.

    what mode is the esc in? what batteries are you running. servos buzz/hum when they are on and specially if there is some tension on them. thats not the problem tho.

    i suspect either your esc and radio is not calibrated correctly or your receiver and radio are not bound and or your esc is in the wrong mode for the type of battery you are using.

    What other Traxxas rigs run dual steer servos?

    Are the stock steering servos weak? I had the same issue with my T Maxx after some upgrades.
