    Have you tried to rebind it?

    Do you have a 2.4GHz controller?

    If the esc is in lipo mode and your using a nimh battery the low voltage cut off could be shutting you down. Check your manual on how to change the esc settings back to normal mode. If you don't have the manual you can find it on traxxas web site.

    So no on the 2.4?
    First thing is check all of your wire connections and make sure nothing is loose.
    Has it been in water, if yes check for moisture in any of the electronics.
    Make sure all of your batteries are good.
    Does the steering servo work?

    2.4 ghz controller usually has the smaller plastic antenna...but your button on your esc might be stuck in the down position cause it to run through the set up mode...get a pair of needle nose pliars and turn the esc on and take the pliars and pull the button up ...dont pull to hard... and see if thats it...the xl-5 and vxl-3s esc's have tendencies for sticky buttons which cause the cars to run through the set up...

    if your steerings not working try re-binding....while the cars off turn the wheels to full lock left or right and turn the car on.....and if your getting power to the servo it will center itself...and if it does ...more than likely need to rebind the receiver with the transmitter

    check to see if the servo and ESC are in right slots, the one i bought my son had the ESC and servo both in slot 1. Traxxas had to replace the servo and the motor.
