I recently purchased a brand new Fury BLS from an eBay seller, but no joy. Battery charged for the advised 4.7 hours, connected up, ESC set correctly, but no forward or backward movement, just the steering. When I pull the trigger the blue and red LED's just flicker slightly...

I would suggest getting yourself a better quality charger than the poor one that comes with the truck. It sounds very much as if it's not up to the task.

I think I'll give that a try, it does look a very flimsy charger at best, it shows 9.4v through a multimeter, as does the battery, but not looked at the amps coming out. Cheers for your help.

It also could be a ESC problem, contact the seller and explain your problem.
The ebay seller hasn't responded to my my messages and I've not had a response from Arrma as yet so I've ordered a new esc from an online hobby shop. Fongers crossed...

Which esc did you order? If you call Arrma they will warranty it for you, but you gotta pay shipping and you gotta show when you bought it

I've ordered a direct replacement, as well as a spare 140amp one to use on other cars as well.

The direct replacement worked perfectly. Came in an Arrma branded sealed box.

My esc came back to me in envelope after I paid extra to send it to them in a box

What a mistake I made should have bought a slash like I bought my six year old daughter not one problem
