the cause: one wire fell off the on/off button.

pullstart one way slippage when trackside, batt pack dies one meet, on off switch died another. this time a wire falls off the starter button

i think your t-maxx is trying to tell you something

Maybe it's scared to race against the LST's

Maybe it's scared of the Savages and the HPI MT's

My maxx is scared of nothin, coz its a truck not a person

But it has taken on a true monster truck arena and driven over the crushed cars infront of ~8thou ppl, and supercross freestyle jumps approx 15ft high... Both Supercross and Monster Truck shows your LST whimped out if i remember correctly

demo class for STs? not sure how they'll handle the double & triple, but i'll have a red hot go, possibly followed by a slow limp back to the pits.

Ive put about a litre of fuel through mine running around the track. It handles the jumps fine, ive more than cleared the triples (altho back right wheel does look a little buckled )... just need good tyres on the rear...

Toughest part is turns 4/5... can struggle on some of the rough parts through there. High ride height and soft suspension are order of the day...

Demo class sounds good if numbers are going to be light on. I'd happily pay $10 for one 5 minute race
