at the top of the motor.. it'll clearly be labled one side with a + similar to this monster.
as you can see the "right side" is + (being positive) and the other side is negative. wire it up correctly that way.. if your car shoots backwards, reverse your "throttle" on your controller. that means that whole right side is the positive side, and the whole left side is the negative side.. =)
i think the duratrax ESC came on the evaders? i dont remember if it had a reset or set options.. look liek this right?
to PROPERLY setup your duratrax sprint esc, read the manual here:
look at part #5 if you want to see how to set it up, (i would read the whole thing to check if you wired everything up right).
Good luck.. let us know.
just in case you can't open PDF files... here is the parts that are important:
Problem: Motor runs backwards while forward LEDs are on.
Motor wired backwards.
Problem: Motor runs backwards when forward command is given.
(LEDs match the motor direction.) Put the throttle reversing switch in
the opposite position.
how to reset your ESC
Before you begin this step, your speed control should be plugged into
the receiver and your transmitter should have already been adjusted.
Before you connect the main battery pack to the speed control, make
sure that the ESC switch is turned off. Connect the battery pack to the
speed control and turn on the transmitter. Make sure the throttle
trigger is in the Neutral position before turning on the ESC.
1) With the transmitter throttle trigger in neutral, turn on the ESC. The
green LED will light up for about 1 second.
2) Pull the throttle trigger to full forward, the red LED will light up to
indicate the full forward is now being operated.
3) Push the throttle trigger to full reverse, the green and red LED will
light up to indicate full reverse is now being operated.
4) The ESC will hold this setting until it is reset.
5) Repeat this procedure if any or all steps fail to operate as expected.
(Note: The motor does not function during the set-up process.)
Note: If the throttle is set to full forward on the transmitter and you get
reverse operation instead of forward operation, the throttle-reversing
switch on the transmitter must be switched.
