Its a jr xs3 tx and a rs310 rx. Been using them for over a year now with no issues. Ive had 2 rx8's, an rs pro, and several other ESC's with no issues.

It only displays this issue when a load is on the drivetrain. I dont see how epa would have anything to do with it.

Sorry I missed this earlier.

Make 100% sure you're A B C wires are routed correctly. This sounds like 2 are mismatched.

Another test:

Power off, remove the sensor wire from the esc side. Power on, give the car forward throttle..does the motor spin backwards?

I would also suggest re-soldering your wires even if they are in the correct order. I've had it happen twice now where everything looks fine but didn't work. Re-soldered the motor connections and presto it worked.

Is it possible that with the hotwire you accidentally disabled sensored mode? Does it behave exactly the same way if you unplug the sensor wire?

You can't disable the RS Spec form sensored only mode. This esc is blinky mode period which is sensored mode. This of course unless you unplugged the cable then it will run sensorless.

I've spoke to him since and it appears the sensor board is at fault. A new one has been dispatched to him.

This is another great time to discuss the data logging. Simply data logging this "issue" allows for the user to email us the file for us to inspect and help see what's going on with the system.

Another great feature of all our Gen2 esc's

Would the RS Spec be able to handle a 10.5T in 1cell WGT and 13.5T in 1cell 1/12th scale?

No Rx booster needed, all run on 1cell

I would like to thank Randy and Tekin for their help trouble shooting the issue and sending out the parts to correct it. Tekin customer service is hands down the best I have experienced. This issue has been resolved in less than 2 days. I cant wait to get the parts and get the car on the track.

Thank you

Bronson
