Default SC10 - Young Driver

I have a Associated SC10 with brushed 17T and the XP2G radio. I'm taking my son to the track tomorrow for his first time driving; are there any settings on the radio to slow the truck down? He's driven a traxxas truck bashing around so he knows how it all works. I just think he'll pull full throttle on the SC10 and neither of us will be having any fun! I have tried to use the ATV but it didn't seem to slow down that much, if at all.

Thanks,

Charley

Not familiar with the radio, but you should be able to adjust your throttle end point or trim

On that radio, throttle ATV should do it but make sure you are turning down the one labeled "HI".

You could also just put on a dramatically smaller pinion gear to slow it down.

If it's the TA controller, that's the easy way to do it.
