I have a traxxas rustler with a Radient esc and a 9 turn 4300kv ezrun brushless motor. I run a 2s lipo, and I am having trouble with the throttle. It wont go full speed for more than about 2 seconds at a time. I'm not sure what it is, i dont use it that much, but it would be nice for it to work correctly when I do. Thanks everyone!

What lipo are you using?

I had an issue similar to that on my stampede. It would also "chatter" when I tried going full throttle. Ended up being the power wire going to the esc from the battery was cracked inside the insulation and only about 1/4 of the strands were still connected. So basically, it wasn't getting enough current flow. A pack that is too low C for the setup or a really tired pack could probably do the same thing.

Speaking of "flow", those motors with the ABC wires coming out of the can, and that are apart of the stator (you know, the ones with really stiff wires) don't like to be bent out of shape a lot.
