Has anyone else had this problem?

Sometimes the Citrix doesn't like Novak motors. Try another motor that is not Novak.

Try this:

Unplug the sensor harness, turn the ESC on, plug the harness back in.

Also make sure you use a known good sensor wire. You can also try to program the ESC without the sensor wire plugged in.

Otherwise you may have to talk to SP service.

My son and I are jumpin' back in to the hobby after apx 4+ years away. I am impressed with the quality and usability of the SP products. I purchased a GT2.1Pro Stock for my TC6 and a 2.1EX for my 1/12th. Fantastic speed controls! With the help of Team Driver Billy Sydor, the steepness of the learning curve has truly been lessened. The new 1 cell motors are the icing on the cake!

Thanks to Bill for all his help,
--and--
Thanks to Speed Passion for making outstanding products!
