Default Tamiya Neo Scorcher

Hi All

I wondered if you could help or point me in the right direction.
I have just built the Neo but have an issue where it keeps cutting out.
When I run it, it seem to run fine for lets say 30 seconds then stops and if I let go of the throttle and reapply it jumps forward for a second and stop again.
The battery is fully charged and works my other RC car fine. Everything moves freely when manually turning wheels etc. I have ran the High Point setup for the ESC about 5 times now in case I had done something wrong in the setup.

Not sure Iif i can put a link on this but this link is iphone maildrop video of the car issue
Any pointers would be much appreciated.

Thanks

Do you have another ESC and or motor to swap? If both ESC are new for the build, it could be a bad ESC.

What Receiver, ESC and Motor are you using?

What type of batteries are you using? If you run Nimhs and your esc is setup with an LVC for Lipos there will be issues like you are having.
