    New Slash VXL 2WD packed in ? Only 2 weeks old!

    No LED's @ ESC? Power to RX and steering only?

    Full batteries and all connections checked.

    ???


    Old XL5 was bomb proof!

    It happens. Call Traxxas, they'll take care of you.

    By the OP’s phrasing, I’m assuming that he is outside of the US. If that is true, he must work through the local distributor, not Traxxas USA directly.

    Yes, based in the UK. Local distributer rather dismissive. Only using 2s battery, nothing got too hot?

    They should have no cause to be dismissive.
    Did you purchase locally or from a US vendor?

    Purchased mailorder in UK.
    Research online indicates that this ESC issue appears to be a common problem, but all threads seem to end without any conclusion?

    Anybody else experienced this problem? No power or LED lights at ESC. Just power to RX and steering!

    Can an alternative after market ESC be used with the stock motor and RX?
