    When you say clock, are you talking about the whole motor can twisting?

    Is the pinion slipping on the motor shaft?

    I really don't understand what kind of problem you are having?

    In live chat you said it spins free until you give it throttle then it stops?

    the motor will spin free but when you put power to it it will spin to one spot and stop

    It sounds like a drag brake.

    Are your throttle trims adjusted ?

    A video will help more than anything.
    That way we can see what the problem is.

    yes thay are. i ran it for 5min and it started doing this. when it stops the moter and the esc get hot. let it cool down and tryed it again and the same thing the pinon shaft will tern and stop in one spot.

    the best way i can say it . is it feels like the motor binds when you give it throttle
