Default Cogging help?

Since the RC zone forums are always dead, I figured I'd post it over here.

Here's some pics of my setup. It's a SS5800 (original, not the (+) system)

It worked fine in my XXX-4 but since my GTB 5.5 fried in 4 seconds in the XX-4, I transplanted the SS5800 into the XX-4 pictured below. There exists massive sputtering or cogging as it's called on low throttle. Once it speeds up, it's fine. I have it set to the max speed without reverse. In the XXX-4, it was set to max speed with reverse. Anything wrong you see with my wiring?

thanks, Kevin

It's geared as purple spur (84T I think) and 21T pinion.

I don't see anything wrong, but it seems quite cramped in there.

Would you classify this as a radio glitch? OR an actual fault with the system?

A lot of people have had the exact problem you are having. On another forum I remember someone suggested adding a 5000-10000mF capacitor to your battery input leads, but really, you shouldn't have to do this. Ask Charlie from Novak.

It's not glitching, it's cogging/sputtering at low RPM. Like if your pulling in the trigger and letting off quickly it sputters. Once it gets going, it's fine.

A Novak should'nt cog.
Maybe a sensorless, but this is'nt the case.
Gearing seems fine.
I remember a Novak doing this and it was sent back to the factory.
Have you tried it in the XXX again?

You could try replacing the Sensor Harness and replacing the Cap. Charlie from Novak said that a lot of these problems occur from worn, frayed Sensor wires.
