    on traxxas remotes there is a switch that controls how far the trigger moves in each direction. it moves the center. so if you switch it the esc goes into safety mode because the throttle is not trimmed to neutral. you can change it. but you have to recalibrate the throttle range if you do. ithere is no benefit to 70/30. unless your running a nitro truck.
