I guess my esc still works. I've got it wired up the right way now but for some reason, reverse on the controller is forward and forward is brake.
I'm not sure what is causing this. When I bought the car, it was already wired up with the motor, ready to go. Now after plugging in the battery wrong and the positive lead melting off the esc, and me thinking the esc was fried, it is now working again but in reverse. Anyone know how to fix this? Thanks for the help.
