I found the problem with my sprint flux, sadly it was after i bought a new motor, ESC and reciever box and none of us could believe it happened.
I did have a bad ESC, I programmed the new one and all went fine, Then after installing all new stuff i wondered and pondered why when i pulled the throttle it only spun for a second and i would get the yellow and red flashing LED's on the ESC and it would not do any thing else and the LED's flashing stayed that way until i unhooked the battery, so i unhooked the car battery and hooked up another, same thing, so i hooked up another, same thing so i tried my last battery a 6 cell nimh (all mine are nimh but 3 were 7 cell 1 was 6) and it came to life.
I have no idea how i managed to have 3 batteries go bad all at the same time but i did.
as a test i hooked up a lipo to it and it came to life also, So if anyone is reading this that their car is doing what i described above try a NEW battery, That may be all that is wrong with the car.
I did hook up the old ESC again but it is truly bad and maybe one of my bad batteries took out the ESC.
Back in the game.
