Default Motor Buzzing

I have a question, when my car is going very slow off the start it makes this buzzing\clicking noise while at low rpm. But once it gets up to a higher rpm it goes away. I have been noticing that my car acelertaion off the line is not very good, could this be causing that and if so how would I stop it? I am using a stock bushed motor by the way.

Thanks
Brian

the buzzing is just the motor making sounds at the same frequency as the speed controller at that speed, as the ESC pulses the motor to get the right speed. the clicking might be the problem though. clean/skim/replace the comm/brushes and re lube the bushings/bearings, and it might go away. if it doesn't, try another motor or speed control.
