If you take apart your VSF-1 then you'll be able to tell what they're talking about. Basically to bypass the thermal shutdown you have to cut the post marked or if you have a really tiny soldering tip and you have really good soldering skills you can remove a very small component from the PC board. I just cut the post My soldering skills are pretty good but my tip is way too big to be doing that kind of work

I just picked up a VFS-1 and noticed that there is no wire for running a 7.2volt servo (KO PDS-2123FET). Can I connect the power lead on the servo to the positive terminal on the speed controller to get it to work? Thanks in advance.

Eric

Default VFS-1 PROBLEM ..... SMOKE

Guys ... NEED YOUR HELP,

Just bought the VFS-1, has had one race meeting without any problems. It was awsome.

Last night connected it up to the battery with no probelm. When I went to unplug it smoke started coming out of the negative motor wire (at the esc). Did not even run the car !!

Now every time I swith the VFS-1 smoke comes off negative motor terminal . The strange thing is that the esc still works, also works properly in communication mode.

Ther does't appear to be any short between the esc terminals (checked for strands of wire etc).

Any ideas guys ? Can't work it out .... very frustrating

Thanks

the spark is the capacitor taking an inital charge more than likely - IF above is true
