well the good news is, nothing more broke. The bad news is the motor is likely junk. It would some times just jiggle and not spin up very well. Under load it would only go to about half throttle, if you gave it more or full throttle it would just die out. (probably back to the jiggle)
after 3 tries and about 18 seconds of running I brought the boat in to look it over, the motor was pretty warm, the speed controller was at a "just finished a full run" hot, but not too hot , and the wires where hot.
I put it away and ran my Nitro-V-E for it's 15 minute run time.
I thought it may be a timing issue so I pulled out the paper that came with the Turnigy 120A and saw the stock timing was 15* I thought I remembered reading that advanced timing will generate more heat/draw more amps. So I programmed it to 0* but got the same results.
The T 120A acts funny though. Every time I plug it in I have to have the tx at full throttle to calibrate it, EVERY TIME. If I just hook up power it thinks I am giving it throttle and goes into programing mode.
A lot of the time I wish I just had a few thousand dollars so I could just buy a small inventory of parts so I would KNOW how this stuff is supposed to work.
Looks like another summer of old faithful. (my Nitro-V converted to electric)
On a plus note, I snagged one of those "new" GTX3 tx's.
