Nephew has stock Velineon system. He's running good 2S 25C batteries with stock gearing 13/54 with standard size tires. He does some bashing and mostly at an outdoor track.
Problem: regardless if motor is cold or warm, when he stops the truck it needs to be bumped for it to run again. They steering works fine while it's in the stalled condition. He called Traxxas CS and they said send it in for warranty. This would be unfortunate since this motor esc is a replacement from the first one that smoked the esc. Any input will be helpful.
Also, the motor shaft has a lot of play. I wonder if the motor bearing is bad.
