Hey, i'm new to the forums; if this is in the wrong section, please correct me. I glanced quickly and didn't see a tech section ( I somtimes overlook things as most do
Anyways, over the holidays I picked myself up a Yokomo RTR Drift Kit. Being that it's rtr, it should have been set up and ready to go.. great, so I threw on the wheels I bought with it, and took her out.
: It took a while to engage the accelerator, in fact, everytime I turn it on, it takes a while to engage. I made sure to reset the ESC and make sure the radio and car are in sync, and everything was set fine. I also have a problem reversing.. the car has to come to a complete stop and I have to push the trigger several times before it actually reverse. So my question on this is, is this normal for it to pause before acceleration on initial startup, and pause on reverse ? the reversing really limits style when drifting.
: RUN TIME SUCKS!, i'll take this thing out for some 10 minutes of drifting, and it'll die out.. it's not the battery, though I think it's overheating.. it'll eventually stop running as if the battery is dead, but the battery will be at full charge.. any input? do they make intercoolers? or a more hefty heatsink?
: this one is the worst, but not the most limiting.. i'll drive my car straight and it runs fine and clean, if I turn it to the right it does ok, but when I turn to the left, it makes snapping noises, and sounds seriously painful.. somthing isn't right there.. this is only when it has wheels on and is turning, nothing is getting in the way of anything, everything seems to be set right.. can somone tell me somthing I don't know on this?
it's a robust read, but I appreciate any time and input anyone has to offer.
I resort to a forum, because the company won't respond to any calls or e-mails..
