    Were you running a lipo battery? What were your temps when it quit? What color was the light when it was blinking. A little more information about what was going on would be helpful I think.

    I have problems with mine sometimes......As soon as I plug in the battery it starts blinking as to set it.....I figured the on/off button is sticking...everytime I get it to stop blinking I have to take the low voltage off again (still running nimh)

    if its a fast blink check your servo channels on your controller you might have bumped them. I did it once and this happened to me.

    You need to reset the LVC by unplugging the battery and then plugging in a fully charged battery. BTW- You don't run with the LVC on when running NiMh batteries! Make sure to disable trhe LVC before running NiHms and you shouldn't get a "red blinky light".

    To save me the the time of reading my manual....what color light is for lipo? Is it green (like the VXL-3m) and red for NiMh/Nicad?

    Correct, however the green LVC enabled light will blink red when the LVC is triggered or the esc goes into thermal shutdown. I suggest you read and understand the manual, it will help clear alot of confusion!
