Default Sphere 2007

Has anyone had trouble with these speed controllers? I have had a couple go bad with only a few runs. When I hit the gas, the car wouldn't move unless I gave it a push. It was really wierd.

The few 2007 models ive seen go back were due to a bad motor. Sounds like the issue you describe.
