Wink Whats up Colorado!

Hows it goin with everyone? I signed up for a the forum a while ago while i was still in germany and im finally here and ready to get on the trail. I have a few problems with the rig though and i was wondering if some help could be stirred up from you all.
Anyway, heres the problem.
Im still running stock radio on the axial wraith and when you bump the radio, it makes the car go out of control in reverse at full speed. I have no idea why, trim settings are all normal. This is my first crawler and ive had it since it came out so i was wondering if anyone had similar cases...
Thanks in advance!

Welcome to Colorado!

Haven't had the same problem.

When you say bump the radio, what do you mean?

Like, if i were to rest it on my knee or hit the radio on anything, set it down to check out the rig, just that slight tap on it makes it go out of control.

It should have some spring return pressure both forward and reverse.
Does the spring return feel confident in both directions?

Yeah, everything feels solids. It returns back to its 'neutral' spot even.

It shouldn't feel weak in either forward or reverse.

If all else fails, I have an extra axial radio that came with a summit.

LMK if you want to try it out. I could probably part with it real cheap, (free).

the scale comps are more of a get together, and the acual comps(with a entry fee), no one cares wa you got. I showed up at red rocks last year with a bone stock wraith. EVERYONE in colorado loves to have fun, hope to see you out there!!!!

One G6 I ran in I got a wopping 7 whole points! (SCX10) now my wraith has to be somewhere in the mid 30s... We wont hold it against you if you have a low scoring truck!

On a side note... I think we all forgot the true RCC welcome:

WELCOME NOOB
