Is the only way to power down the truck to disconnect the batteries?
I've tried to push the button but no response.
It has been suggested by Traxxas to unplug the batteries to power down the RC, not to use the button.
Whatever it is I just typed... could be wrong.
Why is that so?
I have never got a clear explanation on it
But some of it is how its wired internally
Plus if you leave the batts plugged in it is drawing a small amount of current.i have forgotten to unplug once
A few hours ruined a lipo,over discharged it.a puffy over discharged lipo can be dangerous.its a good habit
To get into
Sent using lipo power
Mountains cant stop me
they have tried
Hmmm. That is interesting.
I actually notice something today and have notices it many times before but just finally put two and two together. When I shut mine off using the button and unplug the batteries to put new batteries in it sparks just ever so slightly on the battery to esc connection. When I unplug the batteries to shut it off and then plug new batteries in they don't spark.
I don't why Traxxas says to do that but after noticing that I'm going to make it a habit to unplug them to turn them off.
