What's going on here? Has water gotten into the ESC? The XERUN is supposed to be splashproof, and it was just snow, not puddles.
What esc exactly?

Its about 80% something if i remember on the EPA . The Brake force at 75% .

Its a 401 Tenshock non sensored .

It felt good on a higher traction track but on Dry it felt to soft it did still slow the truck down a bit.

Im not familiar with that motor. Maybe someone else will chime in.

If it feels worse on low bite are they locking up? Would think it would be the opposite.

Again, thiinking that it might have something to do with water, I flipped the buggy upside down and power on the ESC.

The ESC puffed in SMOKE, real bad, as soon I turned it over.

So that answer my question. -- Snow killed my ESC.

My buggy stopped running after about a 4 minute run and that was about 4 hours ago. And what happened with the ESC smoking up after I tried testing it again was just a few minutes ago. I have my door now opened wide to let the air in and the smoke out.

If i hit them hard enough after a straight away yea . But it seems like getting ready into a turn it doesnt seem like a enough its hard to explain lol.

I know its a drivers thing.

It may be the motor . Im getting a Hobbywing 4700kv motor anyways and its sensored .

Did you see my other post on here about the Tenshock on this ESC ?

I did several pages back with no response lol

My 8.5t motor has stopped spinning on its own, its has classic bush stick from back in the day. Only goes if you give it a push then drives fine, but as soon as it comes to a stop its not going again lol

We have decided its polarity lock due to a component failure. Just trying to get ahold of them so i can get a new one. Motors 4.5 months old

I do see where you say it can take minor splashing. Personally I would never run one in snow. Just my opinion. Don't take much snow on the esc to melt and pure water. Send it in and see what they say. Their good people.

I've run my Reedy ESCs in the same condition no problem whatsoever.

The only reason I bought the XERUN is that it's supposed to be water-resistant in the same way.

I am going to see if Hobbypartz will do anything to help me. Other good retailers (Amazon, newegg) etc have been very good about customer service, paying for the return shipment, and then eventually but quickly sending out the replacement. I have a feeling it's going to be a real PITA dealing with Hobbypartz.

Good luck !
Hobbypartz are known to me for not so great customer service. That is why I decided to wait for my XERUN combo an extra week and half (due to shortage of the combos) and got it from FierceRCSolutions and I received better than great customer service from Pete.

I turned it on and off a few times and it seems to be working great. Another case of user error/ignorance.
