Default Hesitation at accelerating

I'm still kind of new to the hobby, maybe some of you can direct me to were the problem might be. I picked some 4000mah lipos online. Before I had them I was running my brushless motor and esc with my cousins lipos and had no problems. its been a few weeks since it ran but I got my new batteries and I charged them and when I run the car (losi xxxcr) I pull the throttle and it goes for a split second and then hesitates. It jerks forward and stops repeating over and over again. Is it a problem with my batteries or should I look elsewhere?

Ah, another "maintenance-free" brushless motor with a cogging problem.

Try going through the ESC's setup process again. If that doesn't work, odds are it's off to the warranty department

Also, what brand of batteries?

The majority of "cogging" problems I've seen with sensorless brushless setups have to do with cheap or worn out batteries. They sometimes cannot take the strain that the brushless motor is putting on them.

It's not cogging, it's Traction Control!
