    Sounds like its in training mode. Read the manual and see how to set it to race mode. Thats where i would start. Lvc should be set to 3.4....some1 correct me if im wrong.

    RE: Lipo problem!!! help need advice

    If you tried setting the LVC through the transmitter instead of Castle Link you may have inadvertently changed a different setting. Maybe turned down punch or something. Unless you went from a 8 or 9 cell NiMh, a 2s Lipo shouldn't have decreased performance. The LVC should be set between 3.2-3.4volts per cell to make sure the pack doesn't go below 3.0 volts per cell during use. Plug the Castle Link into your pc, use the Restore Defaults button, then set the LVC to auto or between 3.2-3.4 volts per cell. Sounds stupid but, you know Lipos don't come fully charged right? And Castle esc's don't have a training mode. If that all checks out, might want to make sure endpoints, trim or something else didn't change on radio either and maybe recalibrate.
    Punch Control? I don't need no stinking Punch Control!
