At rest there should be zero rpm. What motor is this? What car? Battery? also what radio system? I have seen cooling fans throw noise on the line to create issues like this.

There are some basic ones, but no video. That could get quite long lol.

Basic thing I often "go to" is to isolate the ESC from the rest of the car: Unplug it from the receiver, unplug the fan,...

You still have them? If so I'd like a quick test:

No fan plugged in, no sensor wire plugged in, battery power only. Power up, result?

That's fine. That layout I may be on a 15T myself. Keep a bit of wheel spin in check and have some pop to clear jumps without issue. Motor fans can help for sure, but don't assume the inside is the...

Well rest assured the ESC can't allow for a throttle "Stick" unless your radio is giving us that signal. I will however ask you to assure you have no push control set. That will give the car a "run...

Th 4600 and 4300 are close but you'd have to change gearing between the two, plus in good hands the 4300 is always faster on lap times.

4.35 per cell is charged for the LiHv's. 178 after a 5 minute race isn't terribly bad if you're grip'n and rip'n pretty good. Do you have a lot of front tire wheel spin? You'd be amazed how much a...
