Sorry dude I can't take a chance like like that I have to touch money in this toy not that I don't trust u just I don't trust anyone
Man ur about a min away me lol I live in Greenville AL
I thought you had a Traxxas Summit not a Traxxas Spartan the boat. Just kidding nice truck by the way.
Lol you watch my videos on YouTube man? So did about it?
I have them loss I have them so lose when I move the pinion gear u can hear it hit the spur gear when u move the pinion gear with ur hand. O them r someone else s rcs like Wal mart rcs my Lil cousins was video in I didn't know was holding the phone the wrong lol
Man I'm so sick of this I have my wires solder good and I let the solder flow on to the plug like everyone said. The plug doesn't come off at all but my and esc gets hit and so does the esc wires and will act like it try to go forward reverse but it barley why is this? Man I'm ready to give up on this of I can't fix this Lil problem
These motors are not sensored which means the motor cant tell what position the rotor is in when it starts . On initial start up the motor will spin in reverse just for a split second before it turns forward. Did you get the field programming card and cable when you bought your motor and esc? You can download the Castle Creations software and change several settings on your esc that may help.
Nah I don't have none of that stuff man I didn't think I would need it. When I I was last driving it it was running fine the last time I driven it and the wire came off but now it will do what u told u and that's it let me take a pic of it and show u
Try plugging it into the esc and send a pic of that. What does it do when you give it half throttle.
You should buy the field programmer it comes in handy . There should have been a coupon with your motor /esc combo so the programmer is only 10 bucks . You will also need the cable to hook it to the computer its the same cable that came with most Blackberry and some Motorola cell phones . I think the cable is like 8 bucks but i should have several since i was a Blackberry guy. I can send you a cable for free if you want it. I know the bec on my XL esc was factory set at 5.5 volts and the servos needed 6 volts . The bec being too low caused my led lights to blink when steering(brown outs).
Did you get the Pm i sent you ?
When I put the throttle half way it does the same thing. Try to go forward. I wonder why it was working before the esc cable feel off the other but now sense I put them on it want do nothing but roll forward alil bit and reverse u think I burned something up?
What's the full name of the programmer?
It is possible you burned a phase in the motor or some component on the ESC board or almost anything else.
Castle Creations Field Link Portable Programmer.

If you're gonna be stupid, you'd better be tough.
How will I know for sure?
Hey my esc light is orange when not hitting the gas but when hitting the gas it turns red any help yall? What yall think it is?
Have you tried recalibrating the esc and remote? I would make sure remote has fresh batts . You should have a green light on remote and receiver as well. Have you tried calling Castle Creations to see if they can help.
The green light is on but it's blinking green think that's why?
Would not having the green light on all the time it blinking make my esc get hot and my motor?
need some paddle tires for that thing
Lol already have some mud slingers and jumbo kongs I roll across ponds and stuff just got to get my rig fixed first
Hey man will be buying that programmer but for the mean time u think the green light on the receiver supposed to be blinking on an off?
I cannot think of any good reason that a receiver should blink. An ESC's LEDs will, but not a receiver.
Wouldn't it be something is your issues were all radio system related? It is possible. Whether or not this is the case, it would have helped to know about the Rx from the start.
If you're gonna be stupid, you'd better be tough.
Yes the green light on my reviver is blink green on and off
Receiver or remote just askin to be sure?
The remote control that u control the truck with its blinking green then goes out I have rechargeable batteries in it I'm recharging them now they r almost done I hope this works man I have so much money in this truck my old lady is going to flip if she finds out my truck want run and I have over a grand in it
I have a summit 1 16 brushless vxl that needs a axle and drive shaft just haven't got around to it I like to drive my big truck lol
Hey I tried to calibration my mamba Monster 2 but when I would do it and get done it wouldn't even move
Dude my batteries r fully charged on my remote control and the green light is still blinking wow this is sickin
I hit set on it now it's blinking red on and off and my truck want go reverse
found this online.....maybe those jumbo kongs are hard on servos....check the servos.
RE: Traxxas 2.4Ghz BINDING PROBLEM. HELP!!
I found out I had a STEERING SERVO short out. I called Traxxas and they assisted me with some trouble shooting, after some testing I realized one servo was bad. I got another one on order now so it should be up and running by the weekend which is perfect since it's going to be 60 on Saturday and 70 on Sunday! Unreal weather here it just snowed 4 inches yesterday lol.
SO basically if your 2.4ghz truck receiver ever blinks red/green and dosn;t want to bind, you most likely have a bad steering servo. Hopefully maybe one day this will help someone else. lol. But problem SOLVED
The motor is fried it spins freely I guess I burn burnt he motor up when my solder joint came lose and touched together I'm getting it fix now thank all off u for the help I have really learned alot of everyone and I'm getting better at at this stuff
