Rustler problem.

Hey guys my friend has a stock rustler with the xl-5 combo and he has a 2s lipo on it. It seems the speed is very low but im not sure because I haven't ran brushed in a long time. It has stock gearing.

Thanks

Here is a video of it running.

Seems slow, brushed can be much faster. Transmitter on full rates? If so, the motor might be "tired" and requiring replacement, or the gearing is way too low.

He has stock gearing on it and he has only ran it for like 6 months and it hasnt been ran all winter. Also we tried rebinding it didnt change a thing.

How does the drive train feel with no pinion on the motor? Smooth, or binding? Perhaps some bearings have gummed up, or the batteries are shot/need to get in shape again.

Is the ESC stuck in training mode (50% power)?

It's not stuck in training mode I put it in training mode and it barely rolled I will check the drivetrain to see if its that. I will also try to put my old titan550 from my Emaxx to see if its the motor.

When you have the motor out, see how easily it rolls too!
