User Note

4/30/2021  Check in

5/3/2021 Inspection – ESC is out of warranty. Protective cover has been removed from capacitor. Capacitor has been resoldered and diode is missing from capacitor pack. Please see pictures. MOSFET board is damaged. Possible causes could be:

  • Improper power input (reverse polarity)
  • Excessive amp draw (extreme burn out, improper gearing, too many runs etc)
  • Motor out of sync (bridged terminals, sensor gap)

We want to help prevent this from happening again. What motor are you running?  Is your Traxxas car rear motor or mid motor? We also don’t recommend running connectors on your motor wires as this can cause problems. We can offer suggestions to help prevent this from happening again.

The cost to repair the ESC will be $120 plus $8 shipping. Please reply if you would like to move forward with repairs.
