Anyways, I realize it is a cheap ESC. It sometimes lurches and makes buzzing noises before the car will start moving. I have already ordered an 80A ESC from Brushless Hobbies. Still, I was just curious if anybody else has ever tried one of these Turnigy Trackstar ESCs in a touring car? I am using a Trackstar 17.5T motor as well. The motor is great. I'm not real pleased with the ESC though.
Motor Type: Sensorless Brushless
There's your problem right there, it's an un sensored esc and you're trying to use a sensored motor on it. Sure it'll work but it won't work as well as it should do.

If you're after an in expensive, reliable and well supported sensored esc you might want to check out a Hobbywing 60amp Xtreme Stock.
The 2 in 1 LCD programing box for it in an additional $25 but then you can hook it up to your pc/laptop & fine tune it even more.
