my initial post was the 1st description i received when I got called by my shop friends
there was no switch, but a very high end power supply they will start at 30v to start the esc, throttle up some then switch to 60v

since we found out the power suply will surge up to 100v and then stabilize at 60v

if i had a nickle...

I suspect the ESC wasn't too happy with a 100V spike....

thank you dkshema for great explanation posted
passed it along to the test guys

did tested againg with batteries using computer and rc controls and both worked perfect

may try the power supply again once figure out how to keeep from surging, maybe adding a capacitor bank to clean any ripple/noise from long power cables

if i had a nickle...
