    ESC Issues

    Old thread, but I think I have the same problem: After beeing away from RC cars for 25 years, I bought a barely used Traxxas Summit 1/16 xl2.5 today. After charging, it did react to steering, but no forward nor reverse. I tried to calibrate the ESC, and after some 20+ tries it succeeded. Then after re-charing the battery (NiMh), it won't go forward/reverse again, and I'm not able to calibrate the ESC: It blinks red, I push full spead ahead and nothing happens.

    Any idea?

    Figured it out: Had to reset the remote (and have to do so more or less every time the car is shut off).

    You shouldn't have to "reset" the remote every time. I'd contact Traxxas support about that to see if they have any ideas about what may be going on.
