well something is wrong with my truck now.. i have 2 batteries for it the stock 3000 mah and i have a 5000 mah nimh as well. i ran the truck first with the stock one ran great everything worked properly. then i took about a 10 min break and ran the truck with the other battery. i noticed the reverse wasnt working.. i picked it up and went forward a bit and noticed when the tires came to a stop they started spinning backwards by themselves ? i then looked at the esc and noticed theres no red light on it, i couldnt get it to shutoff unless i pulled the battery pack out. i then put the stock battery pack in thinking it may be the battery since it just happened when i swapped them. it still didnt work and the esc kept flashing green? im new to this stuff.. thanks in advance
Try messing with your throttle trim. The way to access it is in the 2.4ghz manual. Or in the trucks manual.
Slash VXL, Rally VXL, and Stampede 4x4 VXL.
check the 50/50 - 70/30 switch on the trasmitter. I swapped mine and forgot to re-calibrate the throttle and some weird things started happening.
i put new batteries in my controller one of the four was dead. it seems to be working fine now, i sprayed some wd 40 on the button as well but it turns on and shuts off properly now.. just weird that the reverse wouldnt work but the forward did. youd think if the battery in the remote was dead it wouldnt let it go forward or reverse ?
Thanks for the battery lesson, I figure a ton of forum members have interesting jobs. I fix concrete trucks.
Yup, 1 of the 4 batteries in the tx may have been subpar to start with, making it fail first out of the 4...
