    Erevo turns full right sometimes when car is reversed.

    First I would like to say I am new to electric but not to the hobby. I have been into nitro and gas planes and trucks for years. This is my very first electric anything and I went ahead and upgraded right from the beginning. I have an erevo brushless edition with mamba monster 2 esc and a 2650kv castle motor. I'm running 6s with two 3s 5000mah lipos. I have upgraded to summit axles and have the castle creations castle link wire plugged in straight to the esc and receiver so I don't have to keep taking the receiver box apart. Everything else on the truck is the way it came. My problem is every few times I put the truck in reverse it will turn sharp right. When this happens I can stop the truck and the wheels will stay turned to the side. Then after a second or two they will re center by themselves. What is going on here and has anyone had this problem and know what I need to do to fix it? Thanks in advance for your help.

    well the 2200 is a better choice.....

    as for the issue, might be a servo going out? Did you align / center the servos. They are not adjusted very well from factory.

    Try turning the tsm off and see if it still happens.

    I will try this and see if this helps but the servos actually stay turned for a second or so and then you can hear and see them turn the wheels back straight.

    I don't think I have tsm. I linked this with an older radio with the docking station because that's what all my traxxas models are on. How can I tell if I have tsm without running the vehicle? Or will I just have to test run it with the knob off and on to see?

    Ok thanks. I tried cutting the knob full left and it didn't seem to act up again but I didn't get to try it long before I blew a tire. New ones come today so this afternoon I should be able to run it long enough to see if this fixed the problem. Thanks for your help!!
