What your describing is from very high voltage situations. Thousands of volts shoot through some spark wires and worn old wires will allow grounding. I work with electronic spark ignition at work on furnaces. When wire insulators break down i can get grounding where the spark comes out he side of the wire instead of the ignitor. THE FIX? replace the wire(most never look cracked}

IF you suspect your RC car is doing the same thing as a car with poor spark plug wires then you already know what to do. REPLACE the wires from your ESC TO MOTOR TO BATTERY.
