Default Problem with Quanum Vandal XL - please help

Hi all, we have the above car and since using it for a full battery worth of time at the beach in wet sand it behaves like in the video link.


if you hold it off the floor we get full power but with itís weight in the floor it just judders as if the gears arenít engaging or biting.

the motor and esc are said to be warerproof

any guidance appreciated

thanks

Those ESC to Motor wires grabbed my attention .
A bad connection between the two can cause stuttering like this .
Maybe a dirty / bad bullet connector or kinked / damaged wire .
