  1. Over Geared
    Use a smaller pinion gear and re-gear the motor.
  2. Hot electronics
    Let the model cool down between runs.
  3. Motor exceeds ESC motor limit
    The modified motor may be too powerful for the speed control. Verify that the motor is within the ESC specifications. Select your ESC from this page to see the specifications.
  4. High resistance in wiring
    Inspect the battery connectors and motor wires to make sure the connections are secure and up to the task. If battery connectors are worn or overheat, replace with the Traxxas High Current Connector to increase current flow.  View the connector assembly video here.
