    Need help with my Slash

    A few years ago I bought a new 1/16 VXL Slash 4x4 and some LiPo batteries for it. I forgot to turn on the low voltage detection when using a LiPo battery. I ran the battery down and now the truck doesn't work. I exchanged the ESC thinking that was the problem, but nothing changed. Any suggestions on what the problem could be?

    Thanks

    How much voltage is in your batteries? Are you running 2 or 3s?
    Sounds like your battery voltage is too low

    Both. I bought a 2 and a 3. Neither of them worked, nor did the stock NiMH after running it with the one 3 for the first time.

    Your batteries are suspect, what is the cell voltage?

    Have you tried a new battery?

    Not having lvc set may of messed them up. Are ways to recover them.

    The battery is very likely the problem. Unless you have an advanced charger able to use a NiMH style trickle charge on it. There is little you can do but hook it up to whatever charger you have and just hope after a day or two it revives them. Or just buy new batteries.
