Default Blitz question

Hi all,
Have a newbie question regarding the HPI Blitz.

For some reason, I can't seem to run my Blitz (batteries are fully charged).

Symptoms:
It doesn't want to go forward, and the servo only turns intermittently.
After I stop trying, the ESC is hot to the touch.

Other than the RX (a spektrum), everything on my Blitz is stock.

Do I have to recalibrate the ESC?

Thanks in advance.

Wht electric are u playing? With the right gearing, you shouldnt have any problem abt temps.

I don't have a T3 so I can't advise accordingly. Most cars' manuals have their recommended gearings. So pls check yr manual. Also, ask the others when u are at the track. They will be at a better posn to advise. If u are not using a temp gun, what is too hot huh.

correction, there are two tracks @ BTP,
one is for strictly on-road,
the other for off-road,

not drift.

there's alot of drift meets elsewhere, search ard on e forum, sembawang, yishun, hougang, tampines.....

Recently i saw the Team Associated RC18T on the net & seems cute & interesting, furthermore seems to have a lot of hop up parts on the internet for this car... If it is not too expensive, i would like to buy one of this... but I saw RTR... i certainly prefer to fix the car myself... And also the Traxxas 1/16 scale Summit VXL seems interesting too... do they have both of these in Singapore? Roughly how much are they going for?

Many thanks to anybody that answers my questions... almost 2 decade left the hobby.

Cheers.
Andy
