Help!
Tamiya TEU-104BK won't go reverse.

I have a Tamiya TT-01E Drift Car. I have been using this RC Drift Car for quite a time. But eventually, I have one problem that I always wanted to fix because it's part of the basic part of fitting the ESC.

My ESC is a Tamiya TEU-104BK and I have followed the instructions to set it up. When I tested it, it went forward fastly without a single problem. As I tested it to go reverse, what it does is just to brake and stop the vehicle. Until now, this time, it still won't go reverse no matter how many times I set it up.

Please can somebody help me. I need my car to go reverse too. Hope your words may help me fix my RC Car. Thanks for everyone who tried to help me.

Some ESC will only go reverse if after braking, you move the throttle back to neutral, then move to reverse.

Well, SoloProFan, thanks for giving me that tips but I have pushed the transmitter to full reverse and all it does is just to brake the car and stop. It didn't go reverse even for an inch. Maybe you have any other ideas why it won't go reverse?

Thanks by the way for your tips here.

could be a faulty esc or the esc isnt programmed to go in reverse.
