Well I have learned to troubleshoot a switch. Geez! Never would have thought a switch to go out before the ESC on the first run. I ordered my 2nd Kinetic for the Durango and it had the same problem as the 1st after the first run. I was using the original switch from the 1st ESC. Switched the switches and BOOOM! Everything worked fine.

I am no seasoned vet by any stretch of the imagination but this combo has been the best I have ever run. Smooth, fast and cool. I can smell some of the other guys Durango after the heat. I stay about 135F on the motor. ESC is rarely 110F. Batteries as cold as the room.
