    Hello, I need some help.
    yesterday I bought a sc10 brushed and I swapped the brushed motor for the brushless esc and brushless motor.For some reason the truck is sooooooooooooo slow. I tried everything with the trim .Also confuses me because this esc and motor just came out of my 2wd slash which it ran fine. And also went 55.LOL. So plz help . , Nick

    Do you have a castle link? Or field card? You may need to re-adjust some of the settings on the esc. Also gearing could be an issue as well. Just for good measure........are you batteries fully charged?

    Have you tried callibrating it? Castle ESC's don't like to play ball with new receivers until they've been given a good poke with a quick and simple callibration. Beyond that it's probably either friction (gear mesh or seized bearing) or poor gearing (massively low - but it sounds like this is unlikely), or even something as simple as the throttle travel set too low on your radio.

    It might be the battery do you have a li-po.
