I've had my summit running on 2s for some time now with no probs but today i put in a 3s lipo and had a little fun. It ran fine for about 10min max. then dropped power and after putting in a 2s it just stutters in forward mode and has no reverse at all. I tried reprogramming and also unplugging the steering servo, the motor is pulled off and spins forward but not in reverse. I'm not sure what else i can try??? I thought these esc can handle a 3s. am i better off with a different speed controller or try get this one repaired?

id deff try to get traxxas to fix it for free...but an upgrade while you wait for traxxas to send it back wouldnt be a bad idea.....then youll have a spare!!!
JP has the right idea...
1) Call Traxxas...
2) Find a 60+amp ESC you like
3) Keep the Traxxas ESC for wet running or sell it
Whatever it is I just typed... could be wrong.
I thought as much, i'm looking at the hobbywing 60A esc. I have a bigger 1 of these on my emaxx and had no probs so at $46 it's not a bad option and probably quicker then going through traxxas
