    Just got my Tenshock SC401 3500KV - but it is not working properly

    Just got my used Tenshock SC401 3500KV - but it is not working properly.

    14T Pinion, 54T Spur, 2s Lipo, WP-SC8 ESC

    It does this on full throttle: (extreme cogging)

    ya know when my black wire broke off my speed control on my mamba monster it did the same think just buzzed under full load didn't move stutter maybe. pick it up and feather throttle and would move a bit like yours very weird. That was my problem and I am sure it is yours, one of the wires is not right. Mine sounded exactly like yours

    Thanks guys. I found red wire broke. Tried to resolder it but motor still does the same. It was at my risk because i bought it used. Now i have to look for another motor. very frustrating but lessons learned

    I fixed it by getting another motor Tenshock had a something like a shortcut in the windings (irreparable).

    So i got the Castle 1415 2400KV from a New Funny Car. Already maidened it - works perfectly fine. Just a sweet awesome motor with tons of power and ambient temps. I love it
