The first thing to check is whether or not your speed controller is in Lipo mode or NiMH. If you are using NiMH, and the ESC is set for Lipo, it will not work properly. If the ESC is in NiMH mode, then try reprogramming the speed controller, as this has been my problem a couple of times. Good luck, and have fun. Hope this helps.

If u are running a lipo in the xl5 you have probley burnt the brushes it has happened to me with three titan12t`s. Do not run lipo with the xl5 the titan 12t brushes cant handle the heat the brushes get so hot they just fall out of the brush holder. I have gone threw three titans 12t @ 25$ each save you money and get the brushless upgrade u will love it. Then u can run ur lipo with no worries. 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

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.

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.

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.

I just purchased a traxxas tq3 controller and would like to know what the red switch on the handle is used for?

The red switch is the reverse and foward switch, if you have reverse. When you do change it wait about a second to change fully. :) Reply if helped
