I have a align 35G and a align 420 motor. I have had this problem before and all I did was disconnect and reconnect the battery.

When I connect the battery, the esc makes all of its normal startup noises. But when I give it some juice the motor just twiches, and won't completely fire up.

Anybody had this problem before?
is it bad solder joints?

It sounds like one of your motor leads has a bad connection. If the connections are bad, the motor may be toast. You can check the motor using a multimeter. You should be able to "ring" between any of the two leads. Since there are only three lead combinations, this is a quick test. All of the lead combinations should read the same. If the connections and the motor are OK, then the ESC is toast.

This is all based on the premise that your batteries are charged (you did check that ).

battery is charged,

I will go through and check all the leads tonight. I am pissed that I just took the motor out to change a pinion and now have to take everything apart again to check this stuff all out.

Thanks for the help
