I have been messing with it a little bit, and i even took it to my local Hobby Town store, but the guy there was a real douche... as soon as he seen it was a Redcat he wouldn't even hardly talk to me, and he even criticized me because of how i was trying to show him the problem?! I don't know..
All i do know, is that the Green light on my controller is now blinking, and that when i power on the buggy the throttle servo starts moving immediately to maximum throttle, and the steering servo is fine, it seems as if the batteries are underpowered it doesn't want to steer while the throttle is doing this, but the servo adjustment on the controller is turning the front wheels and it tries to steer as well (maybe batteries)...
But this still does not explain why my buggy's throttle servo is *****g out everytime i turn the power on!?
Could there be a short in the wire or something?
it is possible.
if there isnt a clicking sound from your throttle servo, then its likely not the problem.
I cant stand when hobby shops look down on a brand. My hobby shop is the same. Its like they ignore the 100's of traxxas owners that come in with broken parts. But 1 redcat owner comes in with an issue or broken part and its "well the problem is you bought a redcat, should have bought a traxxas"
A hobby shop should help out any customer. How likely are you to shop there now?
anyway, back to the issue.
Your blinking reciever light means something for sure. It may not be getting a signal from the radio. Many radios (not sure on the shockwave) have a failsafe. It almost sounds like your failsafe isnt set right...and instead of the throttle going to full brake (as it should if it looses radio contact) its going to full throttle.
but it doenst fully add up, if you have some control over your steering.
try this, unplug the steering servo and plug the throttle into port #(steering) and see if the steering wheel controls the throttle as it should. And do the reverse with the steering(try it in the throttle port)
Also, double check the batts in your reciever pack and your radio. replace with fresh ones to make sure.
