First practice run with the 25.5 and Cirtix went great. I charged the battery, cleaned and ispected and prepped the tires. All set for a second run and blipped the throttle before setting the car down. Ran fine for a second then sounded like the spur stripped. I pulled the body off and blipped the throttle again just to see what was going on. The motor at low throttle just vibrates. It will not move forward until I hit half throttle or more. I'm going to hook up another motor just to check the rest of the system, but what could be wrong with the motor? Sensor board go bad with only 8 minutes run time on it?

The rotor spins freely, the gear mesh was perfect. The 21.5 it replaced lasted forever. Not my first rodeo.

We had same problem here with 2 25.5 motors. Got a SS replaced and a Ballistic replaced doing same thing. Not sure if it was a rough batch or what. But Novak made it right with us.

Good thing I bought 2. I'll send the defective one back. It is frustrating though.

Although it's not specifically a fall event, I want to add that USVTA is officially "ON" at the Carolina R/C Complex (Hobby Connection) in Easley SC. We had our first race Oct 1 and will continue to run on Saturdays while the weather is warm enough.
Great first day of racing and we look forward to many more!

My FT TC4 finished 2nd in the 1st leg of the Hurricance Midwest series on Saturday.

Here are my electronics:
Novak GTB (original/no-lipo cut-off, 5+ years old)
Novak 25.5 Ballistic (originally a 17.5 Ballistic)
Thunderpower 5000 2s 40c (2+ years old)

Other than the front ball diff slipping due to setup and driving, car was very good.
