XL-5 Stampede ESC weird issue
Hey guys, I just bought an XL-5 ESC to replace my old XL-1 ESC and I set it up and it runs great. The issue I have is that every 4th or 5th time I turn it on and I hit forward the car goes in reverse and when I hit reverse it goes forward. Then I have to put it in programming mode and reset the throttle and reverse and then it works for a couple more times. Im not sure whats up.
Also, I'm heading to the LHS to buy a battery the day after Christmas - I have the XL-5 ESC and a Trinity Speed Gems 17t Pro Amber in a Stampede. I have a 15t pinion - I need to know if I should go 7cell or 8cell. Traxxas.com says I can go 8cell but I don't want to heat anything up too much...I was the most power I can get without breaking the car...I can switch the spur out to make the 8cell more realistic so im not just flipping the car all the time doing wheelies...as of now with a 7cell 5000mAh venom battery from another one of my cars it wheel stands with full throttle assuming it has traction...any recommendations?
