My son wrecked my Summit the other day, broke both steering servos, replaced them with new ones, they worked fine for about 3 minutes then they started acting up , really weak response and the headlights flash and lose power everytime you try to turn, the batteries are fully charged. Any idea how to fix? Thanks!
Sounds like you might have gotten a bad replacement servo.
Unplug them one at a time to help figure out if one is bad. On bad servo can affect a lot.
Unplug one check steering, plug back in unplug the other check steering.

Thanks, any other thoughts if this doesn't work? I've left the house and won't be home till tonight to check it out, it's 2 hours to the nearest parts house and I want to pick up anything that may be possibly broke so I don't have to come back. Thanks!
Instead of buying more replacement servos get a good single servo and you shouldn't have the problem anymore, Hitec makes some good servos they cost around 100 dollars but its usually a one time replacement I have servos from 5 years ago that I still am using, good luck and have some fun

Not sure how your servos broke but if it's stripped gears the servos are still good, just need to replace the gears, parts bag TRA2072.
Awesome, glad I saved the old servos, they broke when it hit a tree, any idea were I can buy the single servo?
Could it be a malfunction in the brain that controls the steering, starts blinking then the truck loses all function .
Dunno about your servo problems and I'm not a single servo user... however as for your new servos I would check for binding in your steering system ie unlink the servos at the servo arm and make sure all the linkages, knuckles, pillow balls are free and your wheels steer without any effort. Any binding will wear down the servos and eventually fail, the dim headlights could be excessive current draw. IMO it's normal for the lights to flash occasionally but I did have my pivot caps overtightened resulting in binding and messed up my gears. Do the same for the rears too, it helps with suspension travel.
9 times out of 10 its a servo.they can make the evx do all kinds of odd things
From all the servos going crazy to the truck just shutting down.

Mountains cant stop me
they have tried
Went ahead and bought a high tech single servo with metal gears, should fix my issue, I'll post picks and a update tomorrow!
