The electronic speed control or motor may have been damaged. These trucks are not waterproof, I would avoid water as best as possible.

Most likely the motor is seized up, and it will not allow the transmission to turn. You can take the motor off to confirm this. I hope this helps

I have a traxxas stampede I hit a curb and broke steering the right side tire moves back to the rear of the truck what parts do I need

Well man, id say go to your local hobby store, and buy the peice that broke. Largely hard to say exactly what you need without seeing the part itself. I will try to see if I can find a diagram of it, so as to see what it is.

How do i reset my rc traxxas stampede?

Hi there,

I don't believe the reset (or syncing) is necessary on this model. However, on similar models you pull the batteries from the vehicle and the remote. Wait 30 seconds. Replace with fresh (or tested as good) batteries.

Best regards

Take off the gear shroud on the opposite side of the motor. If you can see the motor turning the gears but still the wheels won't turn then the transmission gear(s) are broken. They are easy to replace. Download the manual from the Traxxas site. If you don't feel confident then your local hobby store should be able to replace these gears for you.

My RC Traxxas Stampede stop working. The steering

Spin the rear wheels and make sure nothing such as a small stone is binding something up in the driveline. Check to make sure the motor has not gotten disconnected from the ESC. If you still have problems with it post again and I will try to look further into it.

Make sure that the battery is charged properly and check the battery and ESC connectors. Sometimes you have to press the "SET" button on the ESC after you plug in the battery.

Traxxas stampede the green light comes on for a second then off

All it was that the brushes were dirty, and they were stuck to the motor. The dealer gently used a screwdriver to move the bushes away from the motor a bit and let them snap back in place. Then it worked. I,m such a new R C guy.

My brand new traxxas stampede broke

If the pinion and spur gears are not touching, the motor can be loosened and adjusted so that the gears mesh. They need to have just a little bit of play between them. If they are to loose the spur gear will get stripped. If they are too tight it puts extra load on the motor and can damage it.
