Default Traxxas spartan need help.

Hello all.

I'm just getting into boating and picked up my first boat. Always been into RC (nitro) cars. That being said I purchased a electric traxxas spartan from eBay. With castle electronics.

eBay ad:

Not being experienced Here is where I'm at with this and was hoping someone on here may be able to help troubleshoot. Using traxxas 3000 nimh stock battery's here is where I'm at.


Throttle: when giving 50% throttle seemed true to 50% power.
But when giving it 100% throttle speed dropped to roughly 25%.

Steering: when turning either left or right it will not make circles as tight as my friends stock spartan.

I tried re reprogramming esc a few diff times and no diff.

I just ordered some new lipos
T**** N*** tech_5000mah 3S 65-130C Lipo

Has anyone ran these lipos yet with stock electronics?
