I'm not really familiar with brushed speed controllers, but I tried to reset the speed control on this new Mini-LST2 because the throttle was trimmed way out from center, and it seemed to launch in reverse like a raped ape, but forward was rather slow. I figured the throttle adjustment was off, so I follow the manual's 4 instructions, and have apparently disabled brake/reverse all together. ESC lights red when I press brake, but no brake, no reverse, and no voltage to the motors. There is still a delay before it will let me go back into forward as well. It's very odd, and the manual doesn't really say jack... Please help, I really don't want to put any money into another mini.

Resetting the ESC
The ESC comes from the factory pre-set and ready for use. If for some reason you should need to re-set the ESC, use the following instructions.
- Turn on the transmitter and ESC. Press the set-up button—both the RED and GREEN LEDs will come on.
- Pull the throttle trigger all the way back (full speed) and press the set-up button once—only the GREEN LED will come on.
- Push the throttle trigger full forward (brake/reverse) and push the set-up button once—only the RED LED will come on.
- Let the throttle trigger return to the neutral (center) position and press the set-up button once more to save the program and exit set-up mode—only the GREEN LED will be on.
A: If the receiver does not receive a signal from the Transmitter, or if during the bind process, the ESC will not enter the Program mode.
B: While in Program mode, the motor will not run. My truck will take off when programming the full throttle setting.
C: If the set-up button is not pressed for 20 seconds while in the Program mode, the ESC will exit the Program mode and the data will be saved.
