    Sending my ESC in??

    First of all when I send the ESC along with the register repair paper, do I include the motor cords??? I am thinking this is a good idea because the blue wire wouldn't stay in and it would come loose. Help me out there.

    Second I really miss my truck and I was wondering if you ever talked to it?
    haha I know this sounds weird but I did.
    I think I had a full conversation??? has anyone done this or is it just me!

    What motor cords are you talking about? My motor wires are attached to the motor. I'd have to send the motor in as well.

    Just send the ESC in. They usually just replace the whole unit anyways.

    Did the bullet connector come out of the ESC, or did the wire come out of the motor?

    Just send the ESC in, no need to send in the motor.

    Rather than asking other customers here who are just like you why dont you call Traxxas tech support and ask them what to send in?

    It shouldn't be this difficult to figure out how to send in your ESC, just call Traxxas at 1-888-TRAXXAS, it is a toll free call and they can answer all of your questions.

    ok and another thing is, how do I get the battery cords off the ESC?
    They are hard to come off and seem like they shouldn't?

    Those don't come off... Just send the esc in with a piece of paper on the inside that:
    Describes what is wrong with the esc.
    Your name
    Phone Number
    Adress
    Email.

    Leave the battery wires on there, they are part of the ESC. Just disconnect the motor wires, they are considered part of the motor. The people at Traxxas really are good at answering questions, they can tell you exactly what you need to do to send in your ESC. You can still call them tonight, their customer service center is open until 9:00 pm central, which gives you an extra hour due to the different time zones. In case you didn't notice it the other two times, the number is 1-888-TRAXXAS.
