    Welcome to the Forums!

    Are you saying that the motor turns the wheels, but has no torque? Or that you can spin the wheels but the motor doesn't turn? I am guessing you either have a loose slipper, or something isn't plugged in right.

    I don't know, but you can call Traxxas and ask them. They might replace or fix your electronics. Hopefully someone with more experience then I will help you.

    Check the connections to the motors and make sure they are tight. If all else fails, like said above, call Traxxas and have them troubleshoot with you ans worst case you may have to send your electronics in and let them troubleshoot them. If the vehicle is still under warranty you may not have to pay for things. Good luck and let us know what it was.

    Same thing just happened to me Alexrugby, your transmission is caught between gears, check your servo and try manually shifting it manually.

    Thanks for your help guys, local traxxas dealer identified electric motor faulty but this conclusion comes after just looking not even touching this unit ... so he is professional or looking for a easy way... I will go with your advices first! Thanks

    You mean no steering right? You may have a burnt servo.

    What could cause this? Before changing the motor steering was perfect... is that wrong motor replacement procedure?

    I'm a bit confused on the issues you have. Do you have a problem with steering? Did you touch any of the ESC connections? Try unplugging the drive motor connections (stock titan motor the 2 red wires and 2 black wires on the motor) and see if steering is better. If you touched any of the ESC connections the steering servos could be plugged in the esc slots wrong or a bad servo.

    Also check your pillow ball caps. If you tightened them up to much it would cause weak or no steering.

    I don't know what you did or serviced for "... before my "maintenance "."

    Grizzly thanks for your advices. Apologies for confusing you guys, I had steering perfect but no torque so replaced motor and after this step (as I called maintenance etc...) I have perfect torque but lost steering... it's turns a bit when is lifted off the ground but absolutely no reaction when is connecting the ground. When ESC (2red and 2black)unplugged is still no steering ... as steering was perfect before changing motor that's must means I did something wrong during changing motor (???)
