They are ONLY doing the GTX!It will still be two months before they get the other chips ready.
I 'm still waiting for the GTB (2) and the 13.5 motor to come back.
Oddly enough I just had a similar thing happen to me. Pulled the pack off the charger and went to plug it in and when I did the motor went full throttle, no smoke but the ESC wouldn't respond - and it was never turned on. Mine happened with a GTS, Spektrum RX, 3200 w/novak cutoff module and a tamiya black can motor. when you spoke with peak did they mention anything like "we have been having this issue"? I ask b/c I am not sure if it is the pack or the ESC- which the replacement should be here tomorrow...

Default plugged in pack and motor spinned up, not turned on

This will happen if the pack is plugged in backwords, +->- and -->+. You are in a sense overloading then bypassing the speedo and giving power to the motor. I have seen this happen a few times with nimh batteries. There is no smoke and the motor spins up. In a novak esc, it can stand the condition for about 1-2 seconds, then the speedo is toast. It is very easy to hook the wires up backwords in a 3200 lipo pack, so please be very careful and always double check.

Yeh, Kyosho/Orion/Peak fantastic customer service.
2 days to turn around my 3200 to my door! Excellent! I was back racin the same week.
Booyah!
F N
So when can I buy the new 3600. I'm on it the same day it's available.
How much can I expect to pay? In between the 3200 and 4800 I imagine.
Between 80 and 125 $$$?
