2012 because my old one blew up (literally).
Recently, my car has been stalling everytime i run it. It
runs normally for about 30 minutes and then it starts
stalling everytime i press the throttle. My battery usually
can last for about 40 min. I can still steer the wheels but
not the speed, so its not the receivers problem.
However, after waiting for about 5 minutes, my car can
still run at full throttle (wheels not touching the ground)
for about 1 min, then it stalls again. After another 5
minutes wait, it is able to run on full throttle for about 1
min again. It keeps repeating until my battery dies.
My ESC is from Hobbywing.
Can anyone help me or tell me what i should do to bring it
back to normal? I live in SG btw
Your battery is flat bud! I think your voltage cut-off is setting in, so when that happens its time to recharge! And if you keep on doing that you will destroy that battery!
