The guys suggested to disconnect and then reconnect the motor (?!?). Well, no result at all. I guess I received the model with broken receiver or somehow the noise reduction filter makes problems (but as it looks like the filter is OK as it has just passive 3 components)...

Would anyone be interested in me setting up a deal with tmart on the L202 for $134.89 $119.89 for the white and green ones? (both are in stock, white one is also in stock in the US warehouse)

In an effort to make my l202 even faster I'm researching larger motor and esc combos as well as gear ratios. I want to compare KV ratings between the stock brushless l202 motor and those I'm looking to upgrade with. However, I can't find any info pertaining to KV,amps, watts etc for the mysterious blue can motor. Has anyone come across those specs?

I wonder if the stock gearbox can handle any more power with its plastic gears and no slipper clutch...

As for the gear ratios, I did the simplest possible thing and changed the rear tyres to 1/10 scale ones. Their larger diameter makes the overall ratio quite a bit longer and I'd say my L202 tops at somewhere around 70 km/h at the moment and accelerates even faster than with stock wheels, on asphalt it needs wheelie bars to not flip over. That means that the stock motor has plenty of torque, once you have it delivered to the road with proper tyres.

Just my 2 cents.

I thought of that, too. I then realized that if the trim was set forward so much that there would be no reverse, the car would be moving forward at almost full speed with no throttle input.

Need not be. Some ESC demand throttle to be at neutral before reverse is possible. If the trim is forward, it will not reach neutral, and not release reverse.

Thanks for your reply. I already replaced all four tires with traxxas Anaconda street tires in the rear and pro line scrubs on the front. Really grips the asphalt! I have it geared for top speed and the ESC timing advanced. So far the gearbox has held up and I really bash the think around. This car is my speed project so I'm trying to push it to its limits. So far I'm at 35 mph. I'm hoping to get it up to 45 mph. I've identified some inexpensive metal gears from another manufacturers 1/14 scale car that I may just buy to see if I can fit them to the l202.

Yes, that's also true. Still, if the throttle trim was too much forward, I believe that the car would be crawling forward (or at least the wheels would be turning if the car is in the air) at zero throttle position.

There is a dead zone in the throttle range, where the motor will not be running, but not be at neutral. So a few clicks trim forward may not result in a car crawling forward, but still be enough offset to inhibit reverse.

A good computerized charger like this (read the manual!) will charge and balance the batteries better and faster and your batteries will last longer in both terms of running time and life time.

I get roughly 50-60% longer running times with my L959 with that charger plus I get more power because this batt has a higher C rating. I can't tell exact time in minutes for the L202, I have only the L959 at the time and also it depends on your driving style.
I bought smaller iMax b6 american model and change plug. It fit my place because power supply is 240v. Plug cost 2€, B6 25.25€
