    just reverse the motor, all you have to do is switch 2 of the 3 motor wires. for example plug the red to the white and the white to the red.

    Your servo should be on channel one and you need to program the esc read the manual again, 1st change your steering servo to channel 1 then go through the forward/reverse programming it's In the manual on how to do it, pretty sure you hold full throttle and turn on esc it will beep then you go to reverse and it will beep then go to neutral. Good luck hope this helps

    thank you for your advice and i did read the manual just to let you guys know and it did show the programming i just wanted to ask u guys who might have had this issue before idid change my wires 2 of them white to red and red to white and yes it goes forward now but i cant get the car to reverse?? so now im trying to figure out how to get it to go forward and reverse?? i also heard according to the manual a part in the book said switching the wires around can damage your esc and motor so i was hesitant but i tried it anyway

    You need to reverse wires 1 and 3... Those are backwards.....

    Than if ur remote goes forward in reverse, and reverse in forward. Switch the channel. My Flysky does that, and I have to run Reverse on the throttle channel with EVERY one of my RCs... That will fix it.

    Middle wire on ESC, will always be middle wire on Motor .. From my experience so far...
