hmm, well I have searched and could not find an appropriate thread, so Admins if this is in wrong thread please advise me with the correct link or move this post at your will.
Ok so I was changing my track around making a cliff face sort of setup, all done, turned power on and the car was driving nicely until I got a bit too cocky with the power and de-slot it did lol, checked the car, put it back on the track and saw some smoke coming from the digital chip area (I had the body off as I had cleaned it and am playing around with adding weight with Blue-Tak currently) anyway, I turned power off and checked the car for any braid metal and other foreign bodies (there was neither) put the car back on no smoke this time but the car just started by itself at full revs (I held the rear end off the track in case of any further smoke hence it didn't fly away on me.
I turned the power off, waited a minute, repeated placement of car on track, still holding the rear up, the motor started full revs once again.... does not make a difference with controller on or off and this is the only car on the track.
Anyone have any ideas as to what the heck is going on? With the smoke from the dig. chip is the chip assumed to be fried? just tried now before submitting this post, the same thing, full revs no controller, different tracks, full revs!!
