    2.0 throttle punch

    Had my first 5 min run today in the back garden, which also happened to be on 6S.

    Not enough space to really have a bash, but I did manage to flip it when reversing. It was very graceful lol.

    Is there a way to reduce the throttle punch on the 2.0 ESC?
    Or can I just limit the sensitivity of reverse?

    Thanks.

    I'm pretty sure neither are adjustable.

    You can adjust throttle sensitivity, braking percentage, and throttle and brake travel limits (not applicable with an electric car) with the Traxxas link module, if that helps any. I don’t know if any of them affect reverse or not though. The “punch” control was a castle thing.

    You can throw it in training mode and it will cut power down to 50% but it is still pretty fun on 6s. It only take a few seconds to do it, just look in your manual for instructions.

    As forwards is fine, I wonder if recalibrating it will help?

    It is what it is. If you are going to keep it all stock you'll just have to get used to it. I got used to it after a couple packs. I ended up switching the vxl6s for a mamba monster x. I still kept the braking at 90% just because I had gotten used to it. I swear 90% on the mamba feels like 50 or 60 on the vxl6s. 50% reverse is default. Another option is an adjustable transmitter and a new receiver. I run a futaba and you can adjust everything.

    Every TQi transmitter has the ability to adjust throttle sensitivity and you don't need the wireless module to do it. Download a copy of the manual and the very last pages are the menu tree for the TQi. You can set the multi-function knob to control throttle sensitivity if you choose. It does affect forward only, however.
