    My new E Revo won't reverse

    Hey guys, just bought a new E Revo car and i'm super happy about it. It's just one thing. I can't make it reverse. Tried looking in the manual and I cannot for the love of god find the EZ-set button.

    Please help

    I do not recall any buttons to press on the ESC, other than the on/off switch. Take a look at the instructions on how to reprogram it using the transmitter if you do not have the field link or Castle Connect:

    easy button I am guessing it is a 1/16, I do believe there is a reverse lockout, if I remember.

    the pic did not work, there is a pic of a giraffe with cats on it...lol
    Would you go flip my truck back over??

    they sure look good when they are new.
    OK few things

    1) Castle Link and check the programing
    Refer to this to setup the Mamba Monster ( MMM ) esc for maximum performance:
    CASTLE LINK GUIDE
    2) then set the throttle, brake, neutral points...... <prob will fix the prob

    Speed Control Programming Instructions

    The Castle Creations speed control should not need
    reprogramming with normal use. However, if you install a different
    radio system in your model, or change the transmitter’s throttle-neutral
    setting from 50/50 to 70/30, you will need to reprogram the speed
    control. Follow these instructions to reprogram the speed control:
    1. Install the batteries of your choice in the battery compartments and
    plug the batteries into the speed control.
    2. Switch on your transmitter.
    3. Hold full throttle while you switch on the Mamba Monster controller.
    After a few seconds, you will hear multiple tones and the
    RED LED will light.
    4. Hold full brake. After a few seconds, you will hear multiple tones
    and the YELLOW LED will light.
    5. Release the trigger to the neutral position. After a few seconds,
    you will hear multiple tones and ALL THE LEDs will light.
    Would you go flip my truck back over??

    I'll try this tomorrow. My car has a Bluetooth device in it. Can I hook it to my computer with that. Dont think the USB and board came in the package. Thanks for all the info!
    Might just re calibrate it. Wont it drive off if I turn on the car while holding full throattle?

    it is possible, that is why it is recommended to take the wheels off first. I have yet to have a prob.
