Did you compensate for the heavy workload the tires were going to put on the car..i,e lower the gearing......or is it a brushed system or brushless...

SOURCE: Steering/shifting works but motors don't run (EVX2)

It is possible, you might want to try soldering a capacitor on the HPI motor like the stock motor has it.

2014 Altima -I got an oil change at Midas (worst mistake ) about two months ago. Apparently the guy half assed it and my car started smoking under the hood after I drove off. Brought it back left again and...


Their must be some oil stored somewhere and it is dripping on your exhaust manifold,but never pressure wash your engine, could cause worse problems,in time the smell will go away,just be patient.It will burn off in time.

My car is hard to turn, it makes an awful noise and is smoking, it smells like burnt rubber, if i continue to drive it what will happen


Hi Debbie,
Not sure with out looking at it, But from what you posted if hard to turn
sounds like your power steering punp aint working , ant if smoking and smells like burnt rubber sounds like pumps locked up, (pully not turning) and if so continuing to drive it could leave you on side of road if it runs a cerpintine belt , that kind of belt runs every thing and if breaks water pump stops flowing water motor will over heat, you should realy have someone look at that for you.

When i turn the wheel my car makes a loud noise and smokes, it smells like burnt rubber, is it safe to drive it


Sounds like the power steering pump is locking up and the belt is slipping. Get it checked out before you drive it.

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

Acer powerboard problem


Wow, smoke right away on the new board? Are you using a AC Adapter and Power Cord that was specifically made for the ACER or are you using one of those one size fits all that some stores sell that comes with a bag or removable tips so that one will fit your laptop? That's exactly what one of the one size fits all will do.

No matter what, you're stuck with buying another motherboard.

Traxxas bandit vxl doesn't work i left my traxxas bandit vxl for 1 day and came back and drove and when i got outside and drove pass my sidewalk to go on the road the esc started flashing red slow


Are you running a lipo or nmhi? You could have the lipo cut off turned on and the battery is too low. Or it could have a bad motor. Try hooking up another motor an see what happens. Or try to turn off lipo mode.

I have a 2000 plymouth neon and for some reason when i drive it in the rain and go 20mph or faster, it starts to hydroplane on me. what would cause that problem?? it has good tires on it .


I experienced the same problem with my 95' Neon. I also had what I thought were good tires on my Neon. Although I had lots of tread, I still was a nervous wreck when it rained. Obviously one of the problems with smaller and lighter cars is it's resistance,(or lack of) to hydroplaning. I spoke to a friend who owned a tire shop and he recommended a different tire that he had used on numerous occasions in just such a scenario. I had them installed and could not believe the difference first time it rained. I could drive through water running across the roads during heavy downpours at highway speeds and it would cut right through with minimal to no loss of control. It was like night and day. It doesn't have to be the most expensive tire on the market either, just the proper tread pattern for water evacuation. If you check on ( http://www.tirerack.com/ ) you can choose driving conditions etc for your preferences and they will recommend a better tire, and you can see the price as well.

Transmission making a clicking noise. one tire spins faster then the other one


There probably is a little stone or sandcorn that's stuck in the tooth on the gears. Try take of the cover to the gears and look closely.
If one wheel is spinning significantly faster than the other, look for stones or sand stuck in or around the bearings at the wheels.
