    It sounds like you have a velineon esc if I'm not mistaken? The velineon is not as programmable as castle escs are, but the three modes are:
    Training- 50% Throttle, 100% Brake, 50% Reverse
    Sport- 100% Throttle, 100% Brake, 100% Reverse
    Race- 100% Throttle, 100% Brake, No reverse

    Correct. I just have it on Sport mode..I can adjust training mode via my Iphone and TQi telemetry for when the younger kids want a turn.

    News: Yes
    Fun: No
    I did take the truck out on a small run three days ago. I was looking to fix the acceleration issue when the truck started driving strange. I pulled it over and the mip axle had come apart. After looking for the missing piece (keyed shaft) for about an hour with no luck, I put the truck away and there it sits today. Its getting cold outside now and snow should come soon, so the project will probably wait till the spring. I will try to work on the esc over the next few weeks. My question to you spenniepoos is what percent do you have your punch rated at?

    Sorry to hear about the MIP issues. Did you clean all the parts real good with rubbing alcohol and let the red loctite set for 24hrs before running them? I know how you feel man, i spent way too much time looking for cvd parts with my first set of mip's. I actually came up with an easy way to find them. I used to walk around with my old school radioshack metal detector and still couldnt find the parts, so i ended up using a 1 foot long piece of 1/2" square steel stock rod and stuck a bunch of crazy powerful earth magnets all along the steel rod (bought magnets from a surplus store for 20 cents each). Then i used some old small chain i had laying around and attached the magnetic rod to the rear of my 5 year old son's emaxx. Then i charged up 4 lipo packs and let him have at it for an hour or two in the general area where i lost the parts. He got a kick out of dragging that thing around and found the mip parts every time with that rod, (pins, grubs, barrels,shaft) along with a whole bunch of body clips, nails, change, screws etc. The best part about it was that i didnt have to do anything! lol

    No, I didn't clean the parts with alcohol, but I used red loctite. I'm thinking I had the set screw on the wrong side of the pin so it didn't hold well. That's not a bad idea to find the missing pieces with a magnet, kind of funny too. I might try it or buy a rebuild kit. Do you know what comes in the kit because I don't want to pay another $75 dollars and I doubt they will replace it?
