That sounds crazy. The only flames coming from my car so far have been painted on. I would doubt the reciever and ESC combo would prove to be a problem. The KO Mars R is high response as well and I would be KO has done extensive testing on that with the VFS.

Should be no problems with that combination. I had a similar one with the 9550 on.

Were you running it previously?

Hmmn! strange..... VFS 2000 is also very popular in my country... I My friend has melted twice.... for the last 6 months.

I think there is nothing wrong with the combination... It could be a failure on the VFS 2000....
