I was being a smart ass.. you need to give us all kinds of info i we will have any chance of diagnosing your problem blindly over the internet..

So lets start off with a few questions:
-How do you know you have an ESC problem? What is it not doing properly?
-What ESC,MOTOR and Battery are you using?
-What are you using it in?
-Whats your gear ratio?
-Is your drive train free?
-Do you have proper gear mesh between the pinion and spur gear?
-Did you get it wet?
-Does it smell burnt?
-Does the motor smell burnt?
-Does it light up any of its lights?
-Does the motor rotate at all?
-Does the servo operate?
-Are all the wires securely plugged in or soldered?
-Have you tried to reprogram it?


Anyway give us as much info as you can...

unfortunately your dealing with crap. no offence. ITs no name nock of equipment.

Hopefully! you have manuals with the ESC? Your going to have to reprogram the ESC. IF this arrived to you new in box and never used, its possible the Radio and ESC are simply not setup correctly.

I found your ESC here: http://www.halleyrus.com/Hobbies/Par...or+Truck+&+Car

But i cant find a manual for it. You need to confirm that blue wire is going to negative on the motor and yellow wire is going to positive on the motor. Best thing is to reset the radio and reprogram the ESC. IF still no got try reversing the throttle channel on the transmitter and then reprogram the esc..( again your transmitter manual will explain this)

I'm guessing that the esc needs to be recablirated with the radio. Try to find a setup button on the esc. I haven't been able to find a manual for it unfortunately.
