    Should my emaxx only go 2 mph?

    To be far it will go 6 mph in reverse. My buddy bought a emaxx off eBay. It had a ******* bushless motor but no esc. He ordered an esc but now it won't work. This is his first truck and I have a summit so no experience with brushless motors. It will hardly go in forward. You can actually hold the shaft of the motor with your fingers. Tried different settings on the programmer with no luck. Any ideas

    He bought a brushless esc didn't he.
    Google search trumps Wiki. Refer to user guide.

    there is too many factors, batteries :what kind, lipos or nimh packs, what specs, Motor: what brand and specs, esc: what brand? eveverytime you put a new esc you have to recalibrate the esc with the radio.

    Exactly. Nimh batteries and are both good. Not sure what model the motor is, esc is 160A 1:8 scale *******. He's using the traxxas 2.4 reciever. I'll look at the programmer and see about syncing it to the esc

    something is not right, maybe the esc is on lipo mode.

    Have you tried resetting the throttle end points....I don't know, it could be a possibility.
