I think I'm having this same exact problem. I just opened my Senton today. Charged up my Lipo. Took it out to a dirt field for a first run. At first it was ballistic fast and I couldn't believe it. Then it seemed to slow. It would drive at a slower rate. Not really any punch and definitely no speed. It would drive at a slow rate and then all of a sudden I would have no control of the acceleration and it would auto break as if a failsafe went on. if I turn of the esc and then turn it back on the same process repeats. Balistic, Slow, Off. But I still have control of the steering servo the whole time.

Edit: I forgot to mention that it also keeps blinking Red after this happens. Flash.... Flash.... Flash... Flash. Ya know what I mean?

I fixed my problem.. I was got frustrated and started pressing the set button a bunch and I guess I reset the ESC and so for 40 seconds or so the motor did little twitches and the esc blinked and then BOOM! I'm ripping up the world again!!!! Freaking beast!!

Wish you the best of luck SMandavy!

I'm pretty sure I had the same problem as you. Try resetting the ESC. I don't really know how I did it but it worked for me. The motor started doing 3tooth turns for about 40 seconds (it was resetting) and then it stopped and then my motor worked fine. I don't recall how I reset the ESC because I was just frustrated and pushing the 'set' button but I believe I Held the set button and it just started resetting. Wish you luck! Tell me what happens!

Thank you brother I'll try that. I tried everything i could last night including that but maybe today will have better results. I've put a lot in this car, just got my new body finished and put the SRC Terrain crushers on it..It looks AMAZING but doesn't move lol
