    When my truck gets WARM it hits FULL REVERSE

    I have the VXL 3s .. I got it into the overheating mode about a week ago and now once the motor and esc get warm I will loose throttle and it will hit full reverse until I unplug it. Is this the ESC at fault? or do I need to look elsewhere.

    While Im not 100% familiar with the VXL, I'd look into recalibrating the esc and redoing the setup on the transmitter before looking elsewhere.

    never heard of that before. Most likely something with the esc.

    It happened with a 1/16 Summit of a friend. That use VXL3s. The summit started to go reverse all way not matter what he did. Turned off and on everything and worked ok. It happened only one time so I don't know if it will happen again.

    How old is it? I'd shoot traxxas an email or phone call and they may send you a new one out.
