    4 Blinking Red Lights After 2 Uses

    So I haven't even really bashed the Maxx yet, only used 2s until my 4s batteries came and boom, 4 blinking red lights. Called Traxxas and I am sending them the motor and esc for testing, guess its good it happened within 30 days but annoyed me none the less. Anyone else run into this issue yet?

    Have a slash 4x4 vxl, plenty of time to add on it while I wait. Sucks though, just bought it, but it's a defect so maybe they'll just replace it.

    Unfortunately its not as easy in the UK. Had a receiver issue and Traxxas simply told me to go back to my LHS!

    That is ridiculous. I did get a new esc and motor, but the whole 30 day warranty should be much longer.

    My VXL-4s is giving me the 4-red-lights as of yesterday. I'm 2 months in to ownership and wasn't doing anything more than running her on pavement at the time. So, I'm in a similar boat. Not much to troubleshoot. disconnected it from the fan, motor, TSM, & chassis and it still derps outs. I'll update with my "Post-warranty period" warranty interaction when its all said and done.
