You might need to reset the opti drive. turn the power on with the engine still off and hold down the optidrive button for 5 sec. see it that works.

I can't seem to start the engine... I tried pretty much everything but nothing seems to work. When I use the EZ-Start, the engine keeps spinning but will not turn over. Any suggestions? I have ruled out everything in the manual and the truck has only ten runs on it. Obviously, I don't think I require a new engine. The last time I ran the model, it ran perfectly. Please help.

    that happened to me one, would drain a fully charged ez start battery trying to turn the engine over, in my case, i had to flip the bearing that connects the ez start to the engine crank rod, it only spins loosley in one direction, so when in propper place, it should grab when ez start is ingaged and once engine is on it should spin freeley....hope this made since to you, explained it as best i could......good luck

Have an older tmaxx and it goes in reverse how do i get it to go forward Do i have to adjust something or buy something to make it go forward or is something in backwards

Hi, you just need to buy the FOC and install it and take out the reverse servo. Just taking the reserve servo won't work because the shifting fork will move while you're driving and go into neutral....

Take care

Start truck and it runs backwards!!

check your remote, the three switches on the bottom.. they control the servo's. one controls the forward and backward servo. test em out. one is bound to turn the servo around.

Why wont my revo go into reverse

try setting your idle down a little more. if your idle is too high, it wont shift into reverse. also check your linkage. make sure it pulls all the way out and pushes all the way in when it is off. try starting it with it already in reverse and see if it works, if it does, then it is more than likely your idle.

My revo 2.5 will shift/not shift

I am not sure on the Revo, but the shift point on a T Maxx is adjustable. There is a small rubber plug on the transmission that you remove and you adjust it with an allen wrench. If you have a manual for the truck it will have a section in it that shows you how to do it.
