    Stampede 4x4 vxl

    Hello, i have a stampede 4X4 VXL and its having problems... I brought it to the skatepark and did a couple of jumps (landed them on the wheels) and then the car just wouldnt respond to anything I was doing on the remote. The button you press on the car to start it lights up so I know I have power but I dont know what the problem could be...

    thanks

    Welcome to the forum and this great hobby of ours..

    Verify that your transmitter trims are at 0 and not moved by accident, use a fresh battery in the transmitter

    Re-check all your connections, including the battery connections.

    Aslo before running again, verify that there are no loose screws, motor has moved etc, making sure the gear mesh is still good.

    If all doesn't work, try resetting your TQ(i), or try binding them again, maybe they aren't bind anymore..

    And resetting the TQ(i)?
    But did the reconnecting not go well or did it not solve the problem?
