    Need help getting my 3903 off the surgery table

    I decided to swap out my Titans for dual Kershaw Designs 700 HO's. Had to do something about the motor connectors from the EVX-2, went with 5mm bullets. ~ Fresh charged batteries, turn him on, fast green blink. Okay, attempted to adjusted throttle trim, nothing. Called Traxxas, sent in my EVX-2, received, soldered & installed the new EVX-2.

    Same funny business. Called Traxxas, nothing. Brushed up on programming sequences. Exhausting forum & Internet searching.

    Traxxas thinks it may be stuck in Lipo mode. Great... My Lipo puffed and was cremated while Little Smokey was in surgery... They also said it was the EVX-2, then the RX was bad, now send the truck in.

    I know it works, and with the stock NiMH batts. Servos respond, motors respond when EVX-2 is plugged into Ch.1. Just haven't figured out the program, Tx, EVX-2, menu, set, hold the button down, do a dance, LED flash business.

    My button judo is not wise. Would someone please help me step by step.

    On a positive note: I ordered a Merv 7107 & series connector today

    That's where your going wrong, you gotta shuffle, not dance.
    You might want to change the radio profile setting back to default first. That sometimes helps. Been a while since i had to do that.click

    Google search trumps Wiki. Refer to user guide.

    Ya, and the new traxxas radios have 2 slots for dual servos and the ESC goes in the 3rd slot. I dont know if the old traxxas radios are like this. (is 3906 dual servo???)

    Lol, I see what you did there. Sly way of slapping a noob


    Correct, I put the ESC on Ch.1, call it Ch.1a, to test the motors. Then moved it back to Ch.2, third slot up.

    Other than this new green, red, green, red flash on the EVX-2. It *should work, obviously the servos are unplugged, so the steering wheel will control the motors.

    * Traxxas tested the motors this way one of the times I called them.

    Next chance I get I am going to take Little Smokey to the not so LHS.

    Ive been wanting a second RC, and with Little Smokey being down. I found myself with a hole that needed filling. So I looked the other direction as my fingers navigated the keyboard & bought a 1/16 E-Revo. Received it today & ... it's fun... but I miss my E-Maxx
