One more question guys... Does all the led lights of the GTB ON all the time??? I mean all the 4 leds??? Cause mine are all on all the time while in nuetral... I set it up right though like what the manual says... but it doesn't say anything in the manual about all the leds will be on when in neutral position...
Anyone guys??? please help... I am getting confused... I know that it should only have the green light on when in neutral... Right???

When all leds flash, I think it means you are in "throttle profile selection mode". If so they should be flashing ..... the number of flashes will tell you which brushless profile is currently selected.

'Quick press" (and release) the selection button to move to the next profile.
Keep doing this until you reach the profile number you want, then just leave it .... after 3 seconds the esc will exit programming mode and return to neutral.

Neutral shows a red light .. or red and green together if no transmitter signal is present ( radio is turned off).

Hopefully we have diagnosed the problem correctly, and that it will now be OK


Good night.

Xanavi,

At neutral you should see a red, blue, and amber LED on all at once.

Red denotes that throttle is at neutral.

Blue and amber at the same time denotes that drag brake is active.

Solid green should only come on at full throttle.

Blinking green occurs at full brake.

At partial brake or throttle you should see the red LED go off.

This is what I want to know about... Thanks sir... I thought I set it up the wrong way... So GTB Brushless esc is way different from GTX... Because in GTX, only red light will appear when in neutral but in GTB, all except the green led will light... BTW, I am very sorry for the confusing question, what I meant was the three led lights are ON at the same time... My bad...

BTW, forgot to ask, if this is the case, then I have nothing to worry about??? Is this right???



@mazmo,

Hey bro, thanks though for the reply...

Yes you are ok with the lights like this.

The reason the GTX doesn't have the blue and amber lights on at neutral is because it doesn't come with drag brake set to default.

If you used drag brake in your GTX you would see those lights on at neutral as well!

I run between a 10.4 to a 11 to let the motor breath, I'd start at a 10.8 and go from there.

Im running 105/24 (9.84) on the TRF415MSXX... for rubber asphalt 5-cell. I can still go up two or three teeth and make runtime, but the car doesn't feel as "alive" as with 24 teeth....
