Question New HBX Rampage 18859E - Engine Issues?

Hi everyone, I am back into the RC world after 20+ years or so. My last RC was a Tamiya Grasshopper!

Anyway, I purchased a HBX Rampage 18859E from Banggood and for the first 20 minutes or so it went great.

However, now when I press the trigger it will move forward like 2 cm then stop. I release and repress the trigger and it does the same thing, forward 2cm and stop... Repeats infinitely.

Here's a video I made of it:

Someone said it could be the ESC so I replaced that and it made no difference. Also tried different batteries and also took apart the remote control that it comes with... nothing has worked.

By process of elimination it must be the engine?
