I think the VX works with 2,4,8,16,32 and 64k for frequency, so high frequency give more power... which battery are you using? could happen that the esc tried send more power for the motor but your battery didnt sent enough power.
For me, 32k as always been the best setting (for offroad) on the VTC.
It seems the lower number means more low rev punch (more agressive feeling) whereas 32k and 64k offer a very smooth low rev and a more agressive high rev.
A gain in "raw power" where you want it is what the Drive freq. feels to me.
On the VTC, too high drive freq led to not enough low rev torque, especially on 10.5 at 64k so 32k was prefered.
On 4wd with a VTC/6.5, I have a good setting for our Euro tracks at 32k (bumpy astroturf, very high grip with lots of jumps). When I race on large dirt tracks, I only need to set to 64k and I'm done, super smooth, very nice.
On the VX, torque is consistent toward the whole range so 64k gives a strange mix of torque and smoothness on the first half of the throttle.
At high rev, the increase power is not that noticeable to be a disadvantage, yet top speed is quite big enough.
Up to now 64k has been our first choice on the VX, maybe also because a simple VTC/VX swap means a lot more power available (others things being equal).
For 10.5 blinky it became very usefull, smooth low rev and maximum power at high rev but 32k might be a good option too.
For big boost 10.5, 64k might be a bit too much when turbo is engaged, need a lot of slope but totally manageable, my favorite for 2wd offroad setup.
For modified, it smooth out starting/landing. Once you try 64k with proper gearing and mod motors, it's hard to come back.
I ran Orca lipos (5200/45c saddles) and motors (RX2).
Can't wait to try the new firmware then !
On the VTC, each new firmware has been a bonus so should be awesome.
