    ESC replacement for Traxxas 3355X (VLX-3S)


    I have 2 Traxxas 4x4 and one of them is not working.

    Symptoms :
    - FWD is erratic
    - BRK somehow work
    - REV not working.

    I have done the calibration.
    I have set it to the proper mode (either SPORT or TRAINING).
    I have switch the ESC from one Traxxas to another and the symptoms follow the ESC.

    Conclusion : ESC is dead.

    So I want to replace it.

    I am trying to find some 3355X (in canada) but they are kind of hard to find or really expensive.
    I did however found the 3355S at a reasonable price.

    Are the 3355X and 3355S compatible?
    Can I simply swap a 3355X with a 3355S and bingo?

    I have looked at other threads mentioning the differences, but at some points the discussion drifted to 4-poles motor.

    So my question is :
    Is the 3355S a direct fit for the 3355S?
    If so, I would simply get the 3355S and be done with it.

    Tra3355r should be a direct replacement. It will run two and four pole motors.
