with all the post on the troubles with the summits esc suddenly coming to a stop and traxxas techs saying they havent heard of this issue i was wondering how many of you have good esc's ?

Mine does this, when I realease the trigger it brakes. I just got my truck on Wednesday and thought it was an off setting in the transmitter.

Hope this helps.
I have one had it about 3 weeks and no problems so far...
No you cant drive it
my RC is owner operated only
Sounds like doing the merv to summit conversion would fix all these problems.
I've had mine since November and run it almost every other day and have had no problems. I also switched out the radio equip. to Futaba 3PM-X FASST but worked fine with the stock stuff.
Mine works great
KB rally & 1/16 summit
94 ford ranger 2.3T
+1 on working great right outta the box.
Wish I could join the list. Traxxas RMA'd mine yesterday for the same "braking" problem.
I can't join the list. Mine and my Wifes ESC's are shot. I got RMA's and shipped both dead ESC's off today.
SUMMIT- DeWalt, 4S
HUH... I have had zero probs with mine so far. Running like a champ on both 2s and 3s ....
Wouldn't you like to know...
i pulled one out of the box a few weeks ago when i heard about the ESC problems, i tested it on stock nimh, lipo, parrallel and series and no prob till now.
i just sold it as a demo model and that customer is'nt complaining either...
Kinda off but on topic- are the summit and merv ESC's different? Im just getting familiar w/ the traxxas line.
nope all the 1/16 scale brushless esc's are the same
Rusty - MERV - Pede 4x4-Alias
SPC Lipo Power
thats why i asked-- Seemed like there was an implied "difference" between the two.. Good tho know that they are in fact the same ESC. Thanks for the answer and i promise not to thread-jack this thread anylonger
No probs at all...knock on wood
