    Question E Revo 2.0 Low Voltage Cutofff

    So Iíve own this new revo for about 6 months with minimal issues. But on my last outing I started with 2s batteries and the very first time I went flat out the esc flipped to 50% power. Fully charged the batteries maybe an hour before hand. The batteries are less than 3 months old with very little use. Always properly balanced. Even with that I decided to try the 3s lipo instead. Same deal, recently charged and in great condition. They worked a little longer but my first deep throttle pull in threw low voltage. And using the TraxxasLink dashboard app on my phone the voltage was nowhere near the cutoff limit. Anyone have any ideas? Canít run the car at full speed, not worth running at all lol.

    Esc’s probably had it because... they just do that at this point. Call Traxxas and tell em about it.

    Also tell me what lights come on on the esc when it’s in 50% mode. And tel me your batteries.

    Sounds like the batteries are dumping. They can't keep up with the demand.

    I have been using HRB for at least a year or so. Never had this problem before. Anyone know good batteries that actually fit in the erevo? I will order new ones and come back with results.
