Sorry Beast, to answer your question, Yes I've moved everything in the XX-4 and put in the B4. B4 is the plastic chassis and the XX-4 is Graphite, so if anything I would have thought I'd have an issue with the XX-4. Prior to installing the brushless set up, I was running a Cobalt CO27 with the RTR speedo and rx, only issue there what there wasn't enough "tune" with the RTR stuff.

So you put everything that works fine in the XX4 & put it in the B4 & it just quits working correctly? Doesn't make sense.

I hear you!!!!! Yes everything in the XX4 worked fine, I put it all in the B4, and it would go for a while (not a full pack) stopping and going again, and at some point as soon as I stopped it wouldn't go unless pushed a little and eventually it'd lose the bind between the radio and receiver.....

I'm not running lipo. a couple of SMC 4200, and a ProMatch 4200

Then it is definitely your radio system. That or your B4 is possessed. You even took the receiver out of the XX4 & put it in the B4, right?

And your sure it's not thermalling in your B4? You said steering still works. If you lost your bind it wouldn't.

I think you're right about the B4 being possessed. It used to just turn right into the back stretch wall at my home town track, I just thought it was interference with the crystals.

The DX 3.0 came with two receivers, so yes I also changed that out with the one in the XX4 too, and then rebound it once in the B4... I'm fully at a loss...

Thanks for the brainstorming......

Default Update on the issue

thought I'll let you all know that I receiver was to blame, so I've since sent it in to Spektrum and the new one is working fine.

Thanks to all that put in their two cents.
