I got my RX8 wet in my Emaxx and had to send it back for repairs, just got it back and installed and the steering all works but no forward or reverse, I put all wires back were they were and hooked it to the Hotwire on the comp. but no luck any ideas?
Did you recalibrate the Esc with the radio ?
I rebinded the receiver to the transmitter and have steering but no forward or reverse. Not sure how to recalibrate the esc with the radio?

1. turn the esc off
2. turn on the radio, pull the throttle, and hold it
3. turn the esc on,,listen to the beeps, and lights, when the beeps change put reverse on the radio, and hold it.
4. when it beeps again let the throttle on neutral
5. the esc should reset itself and be ready to run.
Try youtube it might be easier to understand, tekin is not easy to set up if you are new to it, hotwire has a lot of the functions, be sure to set up the lipos correctly on the esc because it doesn't have auto lipo, you can't switch lipos from 4s to 6s without doing it first on the esc, if not it won't work. That's why I got rid of it, and keep the MMM much more simple.

Found instructions for recalibrating and tried it and it won't recalibrate no lights or beeps, on tekins website it says to turn on the radio then esc and hold the mode button down on the esc for three seconds with the radio in neutral and it will beep and then go full throttle then reverse but i got nothing. I am using a futaba remote and tried reversing the motor but still nothing guess I will call tekin in the morning.
Make sure the esc is plugged correctly onto the receiver, CH2, -/+ on the correct side, don't reverse the motor.
