Try a different motor or try the motor with another esc. Sounds one of them is bad. When that happen to me it was the sensors in the motor were bad.

if you open it then your guarantee is void !!!

if you have tried a new motor and cable at the same time then the speedo is cooked , send it back to LRP and you will get a new one !!!!

Default A replacement

Dont count on it, every excuse under the sun will be used and at the end of the day it will be your fault. So no replacement .
Warrenty is also only 90 days so when did you purchase it.

My spx had a fett problem. They replaced it without a hitch. It did take a little while. SPX's are selling faster than they get them in.

LRP have always been good on waranntees, but I've heard worying stories recently about them limiting them. To me, one of the selling points with LRP is the lifetime warranty, unlike Novak, who only give you 3 months, which doesn't instill me with a lot of conifdence, even though I know they're a good product.
