I've had the same issue with both the Flow and the Orca. Motor is still fast. Hobbywing going in next week. I guess we'll see if anything changes.

This really only happens at very minimal throttle inputs like when lining up on the grid. At any normal throttle inputs, there is no cogging. My R1 Wurks motors were the same way. It's pretty much a non-issue.

I should have clarified this more. I agree that it is a non issue. Only happens on initial throttle input and doesn't affect anything.

Oh, hey Tony. I was referring to the OP. Enjoy your vacation and your goodies.

I'm experiencing a similar problem but during a practice session last night it turned into a slightly bigger problem. In some cases, I have to push my car to get it going due to the cogging issue. I am going to try a new sensor wire and hope that the problem goes away. I'm using the HW V3.1 1S ESC in blinky mode, timing on the can is set at 1 notch before full timing, and my rollout is 94mm.

John, this problem seems to be worse on 1s than 2s. Check your sensor board and make sure that it is fairly concentric with the bearing and rotor. If not, a slight bend will probably make this better.

HW seem to be much more sensitive to this than Orca or LRP SXX

Less timing, more roll will make life easier

Thanks for the insight and suggestions guys. I can confirm that guys running the same motor with their Orca or LRP SXX/Flow ESCs are not experiencing this problem. I hope I can sort this out in time for Vegas. I would like to run this motor since it's proven to be very fast and reliable.
