    New updates.

    I put batteries in my 2.0 and turned on the Traxxas link on my phone. The link said updates are available for the transmitter, tsm receiver and the VXL-6. I'm not sure what it fixed just letting you guys know they are there.

    Well I did the update and it fixed my alarms on my gauges they now work where as before it would just close the app when my batteries hit low voltage cutoff or my temps hit the cutoff so that was a bonus, everything else seems fine.

    Any idea on what exactly changed from the last version or how to find the change log?

    All I know is that it was 3 updates. It updated my Tqi transmitter first. Then the tsm receiver. Than the VXL Esc. Maybe (hopefully) a Traxxas employee will chime in.

    I used my BT module at the weekend and did the same 3 updates (takes ages).

    Alarm points still close my app on my S9.

    The only difference i noticed was that it is a lot more responsive to going in to reverse, or from reverse to forwards.

    So if I get the link module for the transmitter, what functions will work with the stock truck?

    I did the updates before driving my truck for the first time. My truck is in SPORT mode and reverse is only 50%. I have went through a ton of menu items and can't find anything to make it go to 100% reverse. ESC lights up when going full brake meaning the end point is satisfied. But when I go to full reverse, the light never comes on. I have changed modes several times also. What else can I do? Check yours before answering if you have installed the newest updates.

    I talked to Traxxas support and they went through several resets with me over the phone and could not figure it out but they thought they were going to be able too. They want me to send in the entire truck and transmitter for them to check all the components out. Its 3 days old. Has everybody that has read this and installed the latest updates, using the bluetooth module,checked to see if their reverse will go 100%?

    Just out of curiosity, why do you want to go that fast in reverse?

    1. It is designed that way
    2. There is not a normal mode option with 50% reverse.
    3. To get out of a tight spot
    4. Is something wrong with the electronics?

    I'm curious too, does your E-Revo 2 go 100% in reverse if you have the latest firmware? All I'm wanting is to see how many others are doing this.

    Oh and how can you do front flips correctly with an E-Revo if the reverse will not gyro the truck on over cause reverse is not spinning the tires fast enough?

    I'm not running the vxl6s so I can adjust my reverse power from 0 too 100, personally I keep it at 50 percent, the E-Revo 2.0 is kinda long to pull off front flips gracefully. That's what my mt410 is for!

    it's alright son, I'll fix it when you break it.

    New updates on the Taxxas Link app for Transmitter, Receiver, and ESC when I checked today. Updated my E-Revo but my reverse is still only 50%. Anybody know where we can get release notes?
