    Needing an XL5 Brushed system

    Was given a slash 2wd from the in laws. Itís been sitting on the shelf for 8-9 years and I donít know whatís wrong with it. Its the older XL5 esc with the heat sync fins. The esc shows to be a low voltage detection capable but it wonít go into lvp. And even in nimh mode when you give it throttle it just turns off. Looking for a newish xl5 esc and motor someone is willing to part with. If not guess Iíll try the power up program through traxxas. This will just be a basic loaner/basher for the nephew or others to play with when they come over which is why I may want to keep it brushed. Nothing fancy. I am however going to switch to the newer TQ tx and rx. Not liking the old tx with the 14 foot whip antenna lol.

    If it is old enough to have an AM radio system, then the ESC likely does not have a lipo LVC mode.
