    Help...Stock Slash, No steering

    My sons and I wanted to bash around today, but no joy from the slash. We get no steering input, not even sounds from servo.

    We tried new batteries, different radio controller, and we checked all the wires.

    Any thoughts?

    Thanks in advance.

    It could most likely be a dead servo
    if not (i know you prob already did this but) then check if your servo
    wires are connected into the receiver properly and aren't disconnected

    but if you've tried everything then it's most likely a dead servo, and i'd recommend an new one.

    i don't know any good servos bc iv'e never used any other servos except the traxxas 2075 one,
    but hopefully some people here with more experience in rc and have used different servos could help you out

    best of luck to you

    If your troubleshooting does indeed tell you it is a dead servo , you can check Jenny’s RC for a replacement 2075. They are usually under $20 from them when in stock. Otherwise HiTec and Savox make some good ones for not too much.
    Hopefully someone else can chime in .

    You just have to keep substituting known working parts to find the bad one.
    Itís not the radio, so you have to try a good servo and then good Recvr if necessary.

    Indeed, this is why having an extra car (or nine!) on hand helps.

    Switch the esc and servo connections on the reciever. If the car moves forward and backward when you turn the steering wheel and the servo doesn't work work when you press the trigger I would say a dead servo. If the esc wont work when plugged into the servo spot on the reciever then I would say a bad reciever.

    it's alright son, I'll fix it
    Its alright son I'll fix it when you break it
