Question about Traxxas Stampede Monster Truck Rtrw/Xl 5

1 Answer

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

We have two Traxxas Stampede Trucks. Both have done this. One We let set for a couple of hours and it worked again. The second one still does not work. I call Traxxas support and they dont know what is wrong with it. I have also called a couple of dealers and they dont know either. We have had them for 3 days. We are kinda frustrated.
The trucks have an XL-5 controler. and we use Hi-Energy 4500 NiMH battery.

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.

The battery in my Traxxas Stampede melted through the end and started smoking... do you think the motor is okay?

I would be more concerned That you have a faulty charger and recomend returning your truck to the store were it was purchased
this could be very dangerous for children also Good luck James

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

Well first,i droped in an 8 cell and i dont if that did the damnage,but when i give it eletricity the motor runs but the wheeles dont move...its a traxxas stampede xl5,i do not know what to do? please...

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.

Traxxas Stempede, Can't get it to switch on.

Try to only hold the button down for a half of a second. If you hold it longer it will go into profile selection mode.

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.
