So had some free time today figured get some bashing and some speed runs in. During the speed runs I got a little to confident and lost control around 91mph and Slammed into the curb. Now only forward works no brake or reverse MMX8S/1650kv. Car rolls great seems fine mechanically. Ripped the front screws out it drives fine forward just no brake or reverse. Luckily it was my sons rig and not mine!😂😂😂 any thoughts 💭 on why no brake or reverse?

My son son would be so pissed at me If I drove his Infr. and wrecked it.:giggle: I never drive his rigs anymore. I just wrench them. I won't even test drive them. That's his job now. He is 13 now, and is so protective of his RC's.
Can't blame him. I taught him well.:ROFLMAO:

Hook up an ESC programmer and see if the settings some how got knocked out -to "Forward Only" ,instead of Fwd/reverse/brake..




And that's impressive to hit a concrete curb at 91MPH and it only ripped out 4 screws from the splitter!
The splitter itself looks fine 💪

I lost control at 91mph but I’d say 60’ish I hit the curb luckily on a angle so it wasn’t a direct hit. I was going to plug in the Bluetooth and see haven’t had a chance yet.
there's no forward or reverse because you hit a curb at 91 mph :rolleyes:
I got forward all day. just no brakes or reverse no more.

The F/W probably hiccuped with a hard impact and may have upset the Thr endpoints. Needing a recalibration. Best case in a perfect world. Give that a try. Also if you your Programmer cannot even access the ESC parameter menu/values, its a sign the ESC is bricked. Been there.
Can also try a manual ESC reset as one last resort. If it won't go to reset, then it is also bricked.
CC could work something out with you.
