Default Team Orion Revolution motor

I just bought a Steenari Pro 12x2. After about half throttle, servo and motor both begin to jump around, very badly. This is the speed controller I have:

http://www.teamtekin.com/Manuals/TEMFET_ESC_1988.pdf

The instructions say it can handle 240a continuous. The same speed controller used to be in a sprint car with a motor that drew atleast the same power as the motor I have now.

I have 2 of these speed controllers, both exhibit the same problem. I don't have a third speed controller of a different make to test. When I put a different motor in, an old worn out 12x1 or an old Peak stock motor, I have no problems (other than the car is slow, lol).

The only answer I can come up with is I need capacitors on the motor, but these v2 motors aren't supposed to need them according to everyone I talk to.

Any suggestion would be immensely appreciated!
Thanks!

Most likely there is a problem with your speed control. You can send the motor toTTeam Orion customer service and we can take a look at it.

or call Customer Service at 714-694-2812.

Thanks,
Gary

If I haven't gotten it figured out in a couple days, I'll do that.

Thanks

I just tried it with a brand new (as in never been used except once to insure it worked properly) Novak T4, rated at 176amps, and experienced the exact same problem. I'm highly doubting I have 3 speed controllers malfunctioning the exact same way.

Three strikes & you're out Orion!

Definitely sounds like a 'noisy' motor causing your glitch.

As long as the red led is on, the capacitors are working. Also, check your wiring and make sure nothing is grounding out of the chassis.

Ya if your having problems its either the motor is screwed up, or its more than likely user error, if you can take a pic of the way you have it wired up that may help.

I don't think I could wire 3 speed controllers and 2 different motors, and have them work, and then switch to a third motor and have it not work. There is only positive and negative on a motor, its quite simple actually.

I've sent the motor off already anyways.
