Default Problems with the LRP TC Spec Speed Control. Anybody Help.

Well i am putting this here because i am having problems with this. I bought the lrp about 2 weeks ago and the first time i ran it, no problems. When I ran it again it seemed to just shut off on me in the middle of a race. There is still steering but no throttle. After it shuts off it will spin very slowly. I was just wondering the solution for this. Just tell me what you guys think.

Had similar hassles with a buddies esc.
He had 2 blow on him and changed to another make and all was fine then at a race meet over the weekend he tried a LRP TC again and during the race it did what yours is doing.
3 esc's in just over a week.

We had the same problem till we took them out of lipo mode. Just be smart about over discharging your battery and you shouldnt have anymore problems.

It sounds like your sensor wire was either damaged or came loose.
