Default help with electronics

Hi all, does anyone know how to tell if my esc or motor burned, when i press the throttle the motor twitches and stops for a few seconds and it twitches again, the electronics are from the stock hpi sprint 2 flux, so its a flux vapor esc and a flux vektor 5900kv motor, any help is appreciated

One way to tell if its the motor or esc is to hook a known good motor up and see if it works. If it does than its the motor. You could also pull the motor out and try to spin it by hand if it doesn't spin or is very hard to spin its probably the motor.

Yah its probably the esc if its getting hot. Check to make sure their is no soldier or anything touching between soldier posts but yah the esc might be toast.

I don't know about that but I've never ran a sesorless esc only sesored. If you have a local hobby shop I would take the car to them and see if someone could look at it. Good luck

Hi bro, I also have a problem with my tt01, using teu101bk esc and tamiya sport tune motor. first run. when i full throtel immediately and hold it all the way, it like ABS setup on. when i slowly increase the throtel, it's fine. I already turn off my ABS. Any advice? is it lost signal? or low battery? im using FlySky GT3B.
please help. Thanks.

What do you mean by calibrate the throttle? you mean setup the ESC? yes, i did setup the ESC, as normal, neutral, full throttle and brake/reverse. My throttle EPA = 100% on Tx(as default).

Thanks
