    Question evx2 problem

    Hi guys, hoping someone can help.

    I alternate between lipo and the stock nimh batteries, normally I run the lipo (with LVD activated) until the speed drops to 50% when the low voltage cuts in, then I swap to the nimh to get me back to the car. When I put the nimh in I have to disable the LVD and I can do that no problem. The evx has the solid red led with the nimh batteries. The problem started today when the led started flashing after about 2-3 minutes with the nimh batteries. The motor starts running intermitent then just stops.

    At first I thought my motor was on it's way out but I got home, recharged the lipo batteries and popped them in, LVD activated, solid green led, and it runs fine. Put the nimh back in (deactivate LVD, solid red led) and the same problem appears.

    Any suggestions? Could my nimh batteries be done for?
