Even in a big open parking lot the truck will go further than I can make out which way it's facing. With the 27mhz it'd go about 2 house lengths before it'd start doing random things.

I bought a 2nd receiver and put it in another r/c and can use the same transmitter for as many vehicles as I want.

I cant help with motor or esc, I'm having a lot of trouble with that myself, the brushless setup I bought burned up after 5-6 runs, not sure it's it's my battery choice or bad luck but it destroyed the battery in the process. It was a knock-off Chinese hobbypower 60a-sl (Cheap copy of the hobbywing 60a-sl)
Weird, what exactly burned up? The ESC or the motor? Maybe something shorted out, thus burning up and destroying the battery.

Since I have no idea what else to do and also learning that the 27MHz band is pure crap I think I will order that FlySky transmitter and receiver.
I like the look of it and the receivers are freaking cheap! I would of course have to buy a new ESC, but that's another thing and nowadays they aren't that expensive.
