This happened with my son's Blitz. It turns out it the Lipo cut off. Are you using Lipo or NiMH? Check the Lipo cut off on the esc.

if you are using nimh batteries with a lipo cutoff, could def be an issue. If your using lipo, the cutoff should be 3.0volts

i might be time to take the motor out and blow it out. make sure you note the timing position and take your time. I had the same issue once, I took the motor apart and cleaned it, put it back together and made sure everything was tight. and it worked fine. also, make sure nothing is loose. I had a motor once get a loose timing adjuster and it was at like -120 deg timing and it didnt work from crap. I readjusted the timing and it was good.

well timing is different from motor to more. some use those 3 long screws that can be screws in 3-5 different positions. Some are on the end of the motor near the 3 wires and is held in place by 3 screws. normally if the screws are loosed, you can rotate the timing on the end. take several pictures of both ends of the motor. and use them as a reference when reassembling. you can also video take your disassembly and the use the video to reverse your steps.
