Did you have the voltage cutoof on? That can be causing the car to stop.

Voltage Cutoff is an automatic safety cutoff designed for LIPO batteries. It keeps the LIPOs from dropping below optimum voltage level which can cause massive problems with the cells.

If you are running NIMH, the new brushless canseem to suck the voltage out faster than normal esp with LIPO Cutoff on.

If your running nimh cells i would say that you've dropped a cell. I got some 2nd hand IB 3800's way back and they were rooted. In 540 they were fine, but as soon as i put a stock motor in the car would stop and go under accelration.
