i have the brushless system with the vxl-3s. The set button seems to be stuck down. When i turn on the car it just goes into set mode. I believe it to be dirt but i have no clue how to take it apart. Anyone got any pics to help? advise? anything?
i think i`d send it back to traxxas .
I would give traxxas a call first. I think I remember reading another post about a stuck set button on here and the solution was to use some wd40 on the button to work it unstuck, but I'm not sure. Could someone else please verify this? taking the esc apart would void the warranty I think.
My button does the same thing. Pull it up with a pair of needle nose and don't mash it down when turning on your car.
Or, just change your ESC for something else.
Contact cleaner may kill the rubber...???...
i don't think so but i could be wrong
Does more $ = More fun?
any ideas on how to take it apart?
You can't take it apart if it's the water-proof version, you can just take the back cover off but you'll see the inside is covered in silicone to protect the electronics. Try putting a drop of silicone oil where the button is on the outside and get some pliers to jiggle the button free and smooth.
ok thank you.
