    Smoking capacitor on a BLX200 ESC on my Fazon

    Got some real issue with my Fazon's ESC... Smoke is coming from the capacitors at full throttle. The engine run uneven forward and somewhat OK in reverse. The motor becomes around 170 Fahrenheit/77 C, after running it a minute. All cables are warm to hot. The red cable to the ESC are the...

    BLX185 ESC tuning problem

    Hi guys, I just wanted to tune my blx185 esc to up the punch a bit. But when I started to do that, it didn't do what it should do. The manual says I have to hold the set button and turn the esc on. After that a green LED will flash and I have to release it when I got the right amount of green...

    Granite Melted T-Plug

    So I've had the granite mega for over a year now, love the thing when it runs but have just had so many problems, though I'm sure putting brushless in didn't help. Finally got the blx drivetrain in and it's a new truck! Haven't melted a spur gear or snapped an input shaft and it feels so gooood...

    Hobbywing Xerun XR8 Plus Brushless ESC/G2 Motor Combo (2250kV) PROBLEM HELP!!

    The problem is when I hit a jump it dies... like no power to the motor at all so I can’t correct it mid flight. It lands and wreck most of the time now.

    Honest, I looked and did not see a thread like this posted here. If there is, please let me know. I am fairly new to all of this and still learning, so bare with me please. I see a lot of people talking about the max8 esc and before that the max6 was all the talk. But I have also seen videos and...

    Granite ESC Upgrade for my young son's Granite 4x4

    A couple of weeks ago, I picked up a used Granite 4x4 for my son off of Craiglist. The truck was very clean and all stock. The price was right and I knew the electronics would be the biggest question. Its seems this truck goes into thermal shutdown after a few minutes of driving. We're...

    Fazon Voltage.

    Recieved my Voltage with a shock in pieces, this is a terrible design not having a threaded shock shaft. After about 2 hours of use on the car I had issues turning the esc on, I read somewhere that if you turn down throttle trim then power on- it worked and then after a 5 min run i lost...

    New Senton shuts down

    Bought a Venom 5000 40C 7.4 V 2S battery for our new Senton Mega and after 10-12 minutes run time it seems like the ESC loses contact with the controller. The wheels will turn back and forth but no throttle. Shut the vehicle off and turn back on and it will run for a minute and do the same...

    Arrma Granite Voltage only steering response and no throttle.

    So while i was waiting for a rear tower for my kraton to arrive, i decided to have fun on my lil brother's granite voltage under the rain. Suddenly it doesn't have steering response but that's impossible because i change the servo with a aftermarket 20kg servo €35 (original was useless). I...

    I went and got this combo today from a LHS. They matched the price Castle is selling it for on their website,which I thought was cool. I only had a few issues with installation. First I couldn't get the 14t pinion off the stock BLX motor. I have a pinion puller but I couldn't use it because of...

    Talion Arrma Talion overheating

    I've had my new Talion v3 out for a couple of runs now. Really impressed with it so far. I went to my work car park when it was mostly empty today so I'd have space to pull the trigger right back (briefly) but after about a half hour of driving / skidding it around the car cut out suddenly and...
