    I see that the esc is a 2 pole and the motor is also a 2 pole. This will most likely work. 8/10

    Michael, thank you for the reply. I just get a lot of cogging. Running a 23 tooth pinion.

    A 23 gear is usually WAY TOO BIG for a 4000kv motor. I recommend that you check your motor temps very often!!!

    He could be running with 48 pitch gears.
