    Shortage?

    What's going on guys, what is the sign that my Slash has a shortage or maybe a burned out fuse? Thanks guys.

    There are no fuses anywhere in the system.

    A short would be readily apparent, sparks, smoke, loud noises. An open would be no power at all.

    What symptoms are you having?

    Thanks for the reply, I have the 2wd brushless VXL-3S, I charge my battery, connect it, everything is set, hit the throttle, my Slash takes off, but within the next few minutes, it going to stop completely, motor running, I can't even turn the it off the correct way, I have to disconnect the battery.

    Double G, everything is working, initially I thought it was the nimh battery I was using, so I started using my LIPO 3s exclusively, low voltage is set correctly, when it does run, it runs like a Champ. Thanks.

    3s will make it hit thermal, and a nimh will hit low voltage quite quickly..... how long are you running it before it isn't working anymore?
