I've had a similar issue with the Sky RC brand ESC which would tend to surge full throttle for a brief second and lose control of steering, then normal function would return... this wasn't a big deal until my car lost control and ran into someone's shin at the track. I simply switched brands of ESC and never went back to Sky RC again.
