Default Please Help: Tekin RS G1 Cogging and squealing?

My Tekin RS G1 had worked great for a while and then one day I went to drive, and it started cogging. It moves when I push it, but as soon as I stop, it won't move again until I push it again. If I dont push it, the motor squeals away, the car doesnt move, but nor the motor or the esc get very warm at all.? Any guidance would be greatly appreciated!

Sounds like a sensor issue. Try a different sensor wire or known good motor and see if problem goes away. Could be the sensor board in the motor itself. Process of elimination.

Well. Looks like its the esc that bit the dust. Tried a known to work motor and sensor wire and neither were the cure.
