I have a questions guys

I just bought a eagle racing motor cooler (like the blue LRP one) And then a much more high rpm fan for it, because I have read the stock fans are no good

On my LRP TC sphere can I splice into the on and off wire so I can have my car plugged in, and it wont turn on until I flip the switch, or should I go to the pos/neg battery wires? And if you can get one fan, can I also do the 25 mm fan that goes on top? Because the stock LRP one broke, and I just soldered it to the pos/neg, but I like being able to use the on/off switch

Well I put my touring car together and went out and ran it, it ran for a whole 5 mins, and then I had a smoke show

Im not concerned about turn around time to get it back (I dont need it for another 2 months) But when a speedo smokes, what does LRP do?

Am I going to pay over a 100 bucks, or what do they do?

My experiences with sending back fried QC-2s were kinda funny. You write Associated a letter describing a typical "I-don't-know-why-it-fried" scenario and they charge you. You write them a letter describing yourself as a complete idiot for mis-wiring a brand new one...and they send me a free replacement. Probably was a good laugh at Associated.

Lastly, I killed another QC-2 at a race with Matt Francis present. He took it and gave me his spare. That's service!!!

lol, I will call them, I will call them 2 times, and ask them both ways to see which cost is better then lol...... If it will cost more then like 80 bucks, im swapping ESC's to a different brand (and no, not novak STLNLST)

Where's the cheapest place to get the TC spec online? I saw tower has them pretty cheap at $279 with the 3.5, is this the best price around?

HELP!

I bought a LRP TC sphere, and put it in my car, when I plug it in and turn it on, it just runs the motor, doesnt matter what im doing, and the leds are flashing alot and all....

Its brand new, is it already fried, or does it just need to be reset?

How do I re set it?

I changed my trims and that didnt do anything, so its not that

RTM...Set the neutral, forward and brake functions of the ESC to your radio.

Yes. You must always RTFM the ESC's when you get them. It's neutral, full throttle then full brake. Set your trims to 100% and zero your throttle expo before resetting too.
