    Question Wheels turn, but no throttle - replaced xl-1 with xl-5...

    I just replaced an xl-1 esc and motor on an older traxxas stampede with xl-5 and Titan motor. I turned on the ESC and the green light is on. Next, I turned on the remote controller and the green light on the ESC is blinking green. If I turn the steering on the controller, the wheels turn just fine. But when I try to give it throttle, nothing happens. Any ideas what the problem may be? The car battery is fully charged.
    Thanks.

    Is the motor turning or is it even making the buzzing noise when you hit the throttle ? Try calibrating it and setting your steering trim to neutral. If you need to call Traxxas or e-mail them there tech support is great.

    U might have the esc plugged in to the wrong place or in backwards. I bet that's it
