okay so her is my storie started drifting on the waxed flooring and it was awsome nice slow long drifts
after a moment battery die so swaped it out the system wasn't hot just slightly warm came back started to drift after about 5 mins or so the car shuts its self off so walked over and got the shell off felt the motor and just a little warm ok turn it back on turn the transmiter on and the esc shuts off waited for a while and turned esc back on and reciever is red and esc is green turn on transmitter two seconds or so of drive than the reciver shuts off and the esc led glows a dime red
whats rong the velineon system is only 2 weeks old? and was run with the singal stock power cell and all stock parts
fuond it its a servo
same thing is happening to me, what happened?
drifting around swaped out a battery and ran it with out it cooling off(motor was a little warm) on the seconed battery it lasted about five minutes or so when it whent out i was doing a hair pin to turn around i was on full brake and was turning full left then bumped at a very low speed into a table leg and it shorted on me
but other than that should i be able to get a replacment servo from traxxas if i live in canada?(car is still under warenty)
im going to call them after school
steevo95 why how did yours die?
called traxxas and was amazed on how nice it was .after acouple minutes i got my servo replaced free of charge under warrenty
there the best

skip the waxed floors and hit the tennis courts!!! LOL
that must be nice but on waxed floors you can get perfect long persicion drifts with out that much throttle input or steering input
but then i havent tried a tennis court
Traxxas will almost always replace a part that has known problems... like mini servos.
But, I strongly suggest, if your having servos issues, look into an upgraded servo. You can probably sell your mini servo for $10-12 or so... and you can probably pick up one of the ******* metal gear servos that fits for like $17... thats my suggestion. But then again, I didn't ever have a problem with my mini servos at all.
I have had the same problum. I got a new servo and it started working. You can either buy a new servo every time it goes out or get new gears for it.
It is not always just gears... especially if it is messing with the ESC like his was.
Whatever it is I just typed... could be wrong.
got my servo yesterday
nice big box lol thank you traxxas
are the 2080 servos post to have slow transit time for the fisrt couple minutes
I've never had the gears go bad, it's always been the motor inside that fries itself and shorts out (hence the ESC wig-out). The2080's don't seem to like the constant steering inputs that drifting requires.
The prototype project.
That camaro is going to blow up they keep holding the throttle like that while spinning. bye bye ESC
