NEED HELP FAST! ERevo 1/16 dying way to fast *MOVED*
*MOVED FROM 1/10 FORUM*
I listed my ERevo on Ebay without running it for good year. HUGE mistake, I took it out for one last go before I send her of to a new home and she is dying in about 30-45 seconds of installing fully charged batteries. I have less than 10 hours to cancel the auction if I cant find a repair.More details below.
Fresh battery in, runs great for about 30-45 seconds and then it starts to slow down like the batteries died already. I pick it up and notice that the rear right and front left tires will spin for a second and then stop like the drive train is slipping somewhere. I take off the tires completely and the drive train APPEARS to run normal again until I put a little resistance on the rear right or front left. I have also checked the voltage of the batteries, the only ones I had charged were sitting at about 7.2v (aprox) before putting them in and then they came out at 3.9v but gradually returned to 7v+. Oh and awhile back I had some heavy modified tires on it for better snow traction but took them off when I noticed they were causing over heating. Heres a list of mods I have on it.
Running Series 1 Traxxas batteries
Integy alluminium Skid plates
GH Racing alluminium axle carriers
Extended rear suspension arms
I hate to sell her but I'm moving on to new hobbies that are easier and cheaper. If anyone has any ideas i would greatly appreciate the help.

your slipper clutch might be too loose tighten it up all the way in then back out 1/4 turn then try it again
first i would check the batteries-did they get warm when charging? have any other batteries you can test?
how hot did you get the esc before ? real hot?
Take apart the bulkheads and check the diffs. Check the driveshafts, everything tighten up the slipper. Use batteries you know work. Hope you get this solved
ill take a look at all of these, thanks!
Can you answer any questions from post 4
No the batters dont get hot and the ESC go hot but not hot enough to fry it, i've already done that once
