Hey guys,

I have a T2 truck (aluminum tub) with a Novak C2 ESC and KO 27mhz Mars radio.
I am getting a cough and stutter when I am on the throttle.
Do you think this is a radio receiver issue? or a ESC issue?
I am going to quickly swap out the receiver for another and see if that does it.. but wondered if anyone has had that before.
You hold it steady and it stutters, or caughs every couple of seconds.. not constantly.. but every couple..


Also - I need front Associated RED springs for a TRUCK!! I have not been able to find springs anywhere.

Does anyone reading this get to JOHN's hobby? if so I am willing to pay back anyone who can grab the front truck spring set there and bring it to the track Saturday???

Even Buggy rears.. if you can sell me one pair.. I will cut them down and use them.

check your brushes and your motor, it could be loosing contact somewhere. also check deans connectors if you have any i had alot of problems with them before. they are together but inside they dont touch when you go through bumps they could be disconnecting.

as for cutting down springs i think that will change their rate or something like that. im not sure on what it does exactly but i know your not supposed to cut then down.

Sounds more like a motor problem to me... I would try changing that first.

I'm pretty sure I saw red truck springs in burlington at SkyCraft hobbies there...they have tons of RC10 and AE stuff there. Also have 2.2 truck tires but bowties were 32.00 so i left them there...they have multiple compounds too there.

I had bad motor caps that when i was far from the transmitter caused interferance and the motor would stutter...check the motor out or swap it and see if that changes things. if the prob is on another motor too its your radio system somewhere...

Hi James,

I had cough and stutter when on throttle just last week. On the work bench everything was OK. The problem only occured when the truck was on the track bouncing around. Found out I had a bad ESC connector at the receiver. Shaking the wire caused glitching of the ESC. With a new receiver connector the problem is gone.
If you think you're in control, you're not going fast enough.:GRIN:

I had a motor with an arcing problem that was so severe that the caps couldn't suppress the electrical interference. The problem went away once I cut the comm.
