    New addition to the flock

    I stumbled across what I think is a good deal. I also got a brushed Rustler which I'm going to start a post on in the Rustler section.

    It only had steering working.

    This Stampede VXL.

    Turns out this one didn't have anything wrong with it. Apparently it was in lipo mode with niHm batteries AND the esc was just needing to be recalibrated.

    I'm going to run it tomorrow and see how it does.

    When in doubt, re-calibrate...

    Funny thing is, I was with the lhs guy and the Rustler at the time so I didn't even see what the other guy did to recalibrate it. Lol

    Next couple of days I'm going to read the manual so I learn everything about the Slash I just bought.

    In case you didn't know...the manuals that come with the trucks are simple start up garbage. The real detailed manuals are downloaded from the Traxxas site.

    Nice! Good reading there! When you see the convoluted menu tree for tx programming features, you'll be buying the bluetooth module so fast it will be a blur!

    Just for giggles you can download the Traxxas app free at the app store and open it up just to see it's features...then you'll really want to go TQi bluetooth!

    LOL!!! Did you see the Rustler I got too? I started a thread on that one too.

    From the looks of the reviews on the app, the latest update is no bueno with droid. At least the reviews through the Google play store.
