Question. I just got a new motor for my Yokomo drift car. it's a Yokomo D1M 15T motor. My ESC is a Keyance exstraight that's suppose to support all motors. I soldered my connectors on my motor, hooked it up, and it doesn't work. I'm pretty sure I didn't miss a step so my questions are as follows: 1) Did I miss a step? 2) Is there a way to test this motor to see if it's defective or not? I checked my soldering job with a multimeter and that's fine. There's also continuity between the two connector points so the internal side of the motor is still wired ok. But when I go to hook it up to the ESC, turn it on and try to run it, it just sits there.

are you using spektrum? if so it may be in failsafe mode are there any lights on on the speed controller/ receiver if it has any. Does the steering centre when you switch the speed controller on or does it just do nothing atol?
