    Thumbs up slash 4x4 running slowwww

    I have a 2 month old slash 4x4. It's been running like a champ, but last night it just began to run like if it was on a dying nimh battery. Very slow. The truck is currently on lipo mode, with a 2s 5000k mah lipo fully charged. I already reset it back on race mode but still maintains its slow and sluggish performance. I switched from lipo to nimh to see if it was my lipo pack but it was not. I can't figure out what is wrong, since I am a noob at RCs. Any suggestions or advice is greatly appreciated!

    Thanks,

    -Jaime

    check for binding in the drive lines, check that there are no locked up bearings
    possibly overheated motor if temps ever reached 180 +

    since your a noob I'm guessing you dont have lots of stuff laying around so I would say talk it to your local hobby shop they can trouble shoot for you by testing the battery, ESC, and motor. My guess is its the motor though.
