You shouldnt have to I run a 60amp xerun in my 2wd buggy without a fan and it never gets that hot. Check it though after 4 min and see what it temps at.

Yes, just the box is hooked up to the computer. But, today I tried it on my other computer and sure enough it took the firmware the first time and the blocks on the lcd are gone. I have not tried it on an esc yet but it appears to be fine again. Really frustrating. I actually took that esc out of the car and put a different brand in just so that I could test the car out today.

Default v2.1 vs v3

The extra price of the V3 120 AMP is the price of another motor ($70) compared to a V2.1. But I think the extra telemetry and data recording is worth it. Some opinions on this!! (already got a speed passion 6.5T, don't need an extra motor, but a 5.5T combo would be the other option to getting the V3.)

This evening I ran my brand new HW ESC for the first time. This is an XERUN 150amp ESC on 4s. I ran for about 4 or 5 minutes on the track, then I just lost throttle completely like it hit the voltage cut. Turns out, it wasn't the low voltage cut though.

I tried two freshly charged batteries, and had no throttle. Just a blinking red LED on the ESC at first. I checked all my tx settings, checked throttle signal, checked wiring, checked ESC settings..all good. Eventually, the blinking went away and I just had a solid red LED on the ESC. After that, I found that the motor would run, seemingly fine, until I let off the throttle and let it stop. At this point, there would be no LED lit on the ESC. Then when I pulled the trigger, it would not run the motor again and the solid red LED came back on. I was able to 'push start' the car, then it would run fine again.

This was pretty repeatable. Push start, run fine, stop, no throttle response. Push start, and repeat. This was all with a Tacon 2000kv 1/8 motor by the way, in an RC8.2e with stock spur and 18t pinion. After the first run, the motor and ESC temps were reasonable...I forgot my temp gun at home but I could easily hold my fingers on either indefinitely. When I got home, I tried a Castle motor to see if the problem would persist, and it did. So the problem is definitely with the ESC I think.

Any ideas? If it's bad, what's the best way to get it replaced?
I had exactly the same problem on a sensored speed passion speed control. At first I though it was the sensor wire, but it turned out one of the motor wires was loose at the speed control end.. During the trouble shooting process, I pulled my motor apart and after all the movement of the wires, the bad one fell off..

Long story short, check all of your soldering and you will fix the problem.

Cheers

Thanks very much for your input. I had considered this before. The only soldering I did was putting a TRX battery connector on (I'm confident that those joints are good...years of experience with soldering). The battery and motor wires came already soldered onto the ESC with heatshrink over the joints. And, the motor wires had bullet connectors already in place.

With issues like this I will usually start pulling things apart to find the problem, but I didn't want to go and cut their heat shrink off to inspect the solder joints...I figured if I did that and that didn't turn out to be the problem, I might be without any warranty at all.

Anyway, I got an RMA from HobbyPartz where I bought it and it's going back to them today.
