Sometimes after letting off the throttle the stock ESC in my VXL makes a clicking noise....It seems to be working fine otherwise...Should I be concerned?
mine doesnt do that!what kinda batteries r u running?!
RACE IT, BREAK IT, FIX IT, REPEAT!
My first thought is the noise is coming from some where other than the ESC. I had a similar issue (clicking on deceleration and turning) when I had a crack in the front bulkhead.

It.s more like a humming sound....Using the stock 7 cell hump..seems to get louder when adjusting steering trim....then goes away....Called Traxxas,,,they said it was the servo and it's normal...not sure I buy that

Are the stock digital servos always kinda noisy?
Yeah that has to be the servo, mine doesn't sound like that but I wouldn't worry about it to much.
maybe just recalibrate it, use the manual for instructions, back pages.
What's a coffee if it aint Irish
Recalibrated...still doing it....Took the servo saver off and re centered...still doing it....doesn't say much about the quality of this $400+ truck that has been run 3 times..
Did you ever figure out what this noise is? Mine is doing the same. 1 day old and my servo was trashed. Traxxas was good enough to send another quickly. I replaced it and in about 2 minutes the new servo was stripped. It's like it's always trying to turn the servo.
That's definitely the servo, not the ESC.
Traxxas servos aren't known for being awesome.
Get a replacement Hi-Tec or Tower Hobbies branded servo if it really bothers you.
