Default XTM servo issue

Ok so i was running my xtm xcellerator .18 nitro engine. It has the stock throttle servo, stock everything really. Well the car went through a tank of nitro then i put a little more in and went to run it a bit more got tired of running it/breaking it in. so i wanted to just put it up in the air and wip the throtle a bit. did that for about 2 mins to run through the rest of the tank of nitro. All of the sudden the servo just quit. Why would that happen? Could it have gotten to hot from wipping the throttle? It does not seem to be stuck or anything i can move it by hand if the car is off. I've had nothing but problems with this car! Plz help!

Between my friends and I, we have had at least 5 xcellerators and have never experienced this servo problem. Take the throtle linkage off and see if the servo moves. It could be an adjustment on the radio that got bumped? You might also want to check to make sure it is still pluged in and also check your batteries.

It's too bad you are having problems with yours. We got ours as our first nitros and we loved them. Those engines really scream and hold a tune very well. The xcellerator won quite a few club races.

Good luck

this may sound stupid but check the cable is plugged in. plug the steering into the throttle socket and see if its the receiver that is the problem. also take the servo out and check the keyboard
