Traxxas rustler I forgot to mark the channels for the receiver and now its not working and don't now what goes where it is a tq 2.4ghz and has 4 channels

simple process of elimination, start with the steering servo,plug it into one of the sockets and test the steering. if it does not work, move it to the next socket. not too sure why you have a 4 channel radio tho, you only need 2.

My car will turn but it will not go forwards or backwards

The servo outputs are disconnected or loose. Try wiggling the plugs that go from the reciever to the servos...

T maxx 3.3 will start rate up but will not run at all but if i pick it up all 4 tire's spinn like mad but when put down just sits there and runs and smokes but will not move HELP PLZ!!

Check to make sure you don't have a bad servo. When you pick it up the wheels will spin just do to the amount of power the little engine is putting out. Put when you pull the trigger do they go faster? If not then the check these

1. make sure your trims are set correctly on the remote
2. you are on the right frequency - usually there are 3 settings..frequency can be checked by making the tires move side to side also.
3. if you have the trim set right, and the right frequency then you may need to replace the servo

Traxxas tq controller has steering reversed. Left goes righ and vice versa

Towards the bottom of the controller there should be two small switches. One switch will be for the steering servo and one for the esc. Channel 1 should be for the steering servo, move that switch and that should correct your problem.

Esc won't respond to remote on my e-max

the ESC does not respond to the transmitter. The receiver responds to the transmitter. If the receiver channels are working (swap the steering servo between the two slots). If OK then the ESC is bad if not OK then the receiver is bad.

It wont go in reverse it only goes forward, the steering works fine

The ESC on this truck comes with a reverse lock out. The reason is that when you're racing, race requirements are that no reverse can be used. Now you may have accidently turned this on. Go to the Traxxas web site and download the ESC manual and follow the instructions for reverse lock out.

I have a xl-5, a exposed negative wire keeps wrecking motors

You need to either replace the lead or put some shrink wrap on the exposed wire. The short on the heatsink is definitely causing a problem.
