Default Tamiya TB-01 and LRP Runner ESC problem

My TB-01 doesnt seem to be running and the steering is way wrong. The motor doesnt run with that specific ESC but on another its fine.
What should i do?

what do u mean steering is way wrong? center the steering trim on your controller, adjust the servo horn so that the wheels are as straight as possiable, the fine tune with your steering trim again

Does the ESC work? has it been damaged? water gotten onto it? shorted out? overloaded?

You are mean't to turn the transmitter off last, car first. What exactually is it doing? What set-up are you running?

Cheers

How about taking 5minutes to type out a proper description of what is happening. What works what doesnt? Also what gear are u using?

"My TB-01 doesnt seem to be running and the steering is way wrong" Thats a great thead title but it tells us nothing, pretty much impossible to offer advise with no info.

Default Ok

Ok ok here i'll post more info.

The ESC is a LRP runner. The motor is 17 T. The gears are stock. The transmitter is a Sanawa Blazer. The steering is fixed(did that just now) but the motor isnt working, when i put it in my other car its fine. There is a hissing sound that i think comes from my ESC or Servo. What should i do?

All these things came from my Uncle who used to RC but stopped so he gave them to me.
