Default Problems wwith my car..

Well I have not yet fully diagnosed my problem, but never too late to get info on possibilities. I have 5700 mamba max system. I just got a new motor because the old one literally broke in half. Now I have it all hooked up and when I turn the side wheel to steer, the wheels in the back start to accel. I also cant get that power I once used to have. Esc problem? Reciever problem?

sounds like you mixed up your steering and ESC receiver wires?

process of elimination. Try to find friends if you dont have extra gear to narrow it down.

reset the radio calibration on ESC. Possibly you have the connection wrong on RX.

Good luck!
