Im using a M8 and all the settings are Straight up. It runs this way for about 30 t0 45 seconds and then the motor starts to die down pretty quick almost like the battery is dying. Im running a stock motor. I have both diodes on it. I ve tryed it without and made no difference. Thought it might be battery but battery was still fully charged. Not sure what else to try. Seems like the Fets are getting hot in the speedo. Any help or suggestions would be great.
try this first...
1. set up a new model in your M8. a new blank one with all the throttle settings set to factory default.
2. bind the esc to the radio. (i.e. set the neutral, full throttle and full brake).
3. put your car up on a car stand and hook it up to a battery and try it out. try it without a pinion and see if the motor responds to your throttle inputs.
if this doesnt work, then you might have a blown fet. if you purchased it in the united states, contact Robert Morris at email@example.com
hope that helps.
