I had a similar situation with my TC-spec (brand new, shrinkwrapped capacitor) and an orion 4.5T. The car slowed down badly in corners and was down on power. Checked the settings and bumped up the punch to 4 from 3 and it was all gone. This leads me to believe that this is something thats built in to punch modes.

The Spheres I bought before that and after that have both been working flawlessly.

Contact LRP about your problem, they are aware of it.

I need to call them myself. They have had my Sphere for over a month now.

SQC, have you gotten your ESC back yet? I just bought a used TC Spec and it seems to have the same problem. Radio settings are correct, tried a Sphere Comp. 2007 and that works no problem.

I had this problem using an old sphere as well, turned it in and received a new one so this is definately an ESC problem.
