With this setup the car felt very slow. There was very little punch, which made jumping tough. In fact one person sailed high above me before landing right on top of me and snapping his chassis in half.

I took my car off the track after the qualifier and blipped the throttle a few times and you could tell power was way down. I had left reversed on (with delay). Interestingly when I blipped reverse I had tons of power - so only forward was affected.

With Kopropo radios, the throttle is by default set to "reverse". I switched to normal to see if this was the problem, but then it would not allow me to calibrate the speed control, so i went back to the "reverse" setting.

I msg'd Randy already, but wondering if anyone else has an idea? I'm going to re-solder connects, try a different motor, and if this fails, likely send RS to Tekin to look at.

Any thoughts?
sounds like it is in dual mode,double check it and check the sensor wire to make sure it working
