I cant get reverse with my 3PK unless i have the foward to atleast 55. At that point the car just rolls and i cant drive it in the turns. I noticed so people at my track have the KO radio and they are using the push button where you grip the radio with your left hand. i was wondering if it is possible to do it with the 3PK. Any input will be appreciated.

If you have access to a 2.4 setting module just adjust neutral to wide and your concerns should be solved.

I already put it on the ICS setting and took off the vertual inertia so its not that

I actually found the same thing Phil this week. If I trimmed f like 10 clicks, it went into reverse very fast, at 9 it went, but it lagged and didn't engage some, but I also didn't like the lack of drag with the trim. I have yet to modify my ICS settings though, need to do that.

Make sure that ABS is disabled as well. We had an issue with it on the 3PK. For some reason it hasn't been a concern on the 3PKS.

how do you describe "off" because there is a bunch off things that come up when i click A.B.S.

Make sure that ABS is disabled. If you have the radio on and push the trigger toward brake and the power on light above the screen flashes then ABS is still on. Good luck. It is really great once you get it sorted.

Is that the radio that pchano was selling? If not then go to the manual and study up on ABS. It worked really good with the AM cars. You could bury the car in the turn then stab the brake and drive off. With the 2.4 though the board seemed to see the ABS action as brake apply over and over and not let reverse engage.

Make sure the motor wires are not reversed.

I saw the same thing with abs and 2.4. Which menu would let us assign 100% epa to button on the handle?

I have no earthly idea. It is all I can do to turn the radio on. Every once in a while I break out the manual to try to learn something but as long as I can get what I want out of it I try not to push to many buttons. Being left handed locks me to things that are beyond my comprehension. I used to use the Futaba 3PG but that was during the 80's. Everything was simpler then.
