Make sure your radios direction is going the rite way, then set throttle to 100% and trim to center...
Trans on full throttle then turn on the esc, wait for the series of chimes then full reverse, wait for chimes, go nuetral.....ect..
Is that what you have????
Also make sure your esc is set up for your battery, they come preset for 2s I believe so if you dont have enough voltage you will be dead before you start...

LOL, Ive done it... the sidewinders are awesome, castle hit the nail on this one because I have them in my 10th scale bashers and my sons cars, they work awesome, so I figured the esc wasnt at fault... Also castle has the best tech support, you call leave a message if they dont answer and they get rite back to you with good help..
