Default electric problems with t4.

I have an associated t4 with a novak GTB and 13.5 brushless. I run trak power 4900 lipo, and some times it will just stop. I'll have steering but no go. I've checked my solder connections, the little white plug on the esc, it doesent feel hot when it happens either. I'll leave it set awhile then it's fine again. any suggestions.

If possible, try a different battery and see if it still occurs.

Also, try the battery you have in another brushless equipped vehicle and see how it performs.

check the esc lights to see if its going into thermal shutdown mode.

My old GTB was doing this also. I couldnt get it out of Lipo cut-off mode
it's like it froze there. Guys are the track couldnt even figure it out.
They said it was my sensor wire coming loose. They even shoo gooed it
in the slot and everything....no give... I figured my motor might have went out on me,
so I sent in my old stuff to novak and got a replacement GTB and motor.
Have not had a problem out of the new one so far.

Seems like this guy had that same problem I did.
