Traxxas Slash won't move forward in either mode

Hello everyone,

I am using a Traxxas Slash vehicle-- as the one I am showing in the link: ... GpYWC02Nlk

I followed the setup from the wiki. However, the car does not move forward just the steering on Manual mode. . I had been going over the forum and found out I have to do an ESC calibration like in a quadcopter. If so, is the process the same?

Also, I am using Turnigy 9x Radio and receiver. On Mission Planner doing the Mode Setup, I am only able to get one mode and not the others as described in the wiki. Do I have to do the setup for modes on the Radio? If so, is the process the same as for a quadcopter.

Thanks for any help provided.
