    1/16 Summit XL - Servo smoke => ESC unresponsive

    Traxxas shipped me out a new servo right away when I called to tell them my old one started smoking (truck run a dozen or so times). But after hooking it up, the ESC is completely unresponsive. Won't even light up. any thoughts? Did it get fried too?

    It may have... call Traxxas again.. explain to them everything and they just might send you a new ESC.
    Whatever it is I just typed... could be wrong.

    Call traxxas. They will send a new servo and esc. I think esc's are still on backorder right now, though.

    RE: Servo & ESC failure, That combination is puzzling to me. My kid had the same failure on his Grave Digger, and I have no clue as to why. His was in training mode when it happened. Any ideas? My LHS contacted Traxxas for me, they replaced the servo, ESC, and motor! I then installed the dual servo setup, and have had NO problems!
