Default New Backdraft 8E Problems

So I finally was able to get my factory charger and charge my batteries so i could run my car again. I go out to run and it works for about 2 minutes then quits. The ESC blinks red after it quits and it says that means low voltage shut off. What the hell does that mean and how do I fix it? For God's sake I jsut want to run my new car! Help, please!

It sounds like your batteries are not holding a charge. Try different batteries?

The LVC is there to save your LiPo batteries from discharging to a level that may damage them. In your case the voltage on the batteries may already be to low to meet the required amount.
