Default Facing an Issue in RC Car, Can Someone Please Guide?

Hello everyone!

I'm in a bit of a pickle and could really use some guidance. Recently, my RC car started acting up, and I'm not sure what's going on.

The problem is that it's suddenly lost a lot of power and doesn't seem to respond as smoothly as it used to. I've checked the batteries, and they're fine, so I'm leaning towards a motor or electronic issue.

If anyone has faced a similar problem or has some troubleshooting tips, I'd greatly appreciate your input. I'm really eager to get back to racing, and your expertise would be invaluable.

Fun fact, all electronics will fail over time and typically the motor tends to go first, but some things to try here:

Good Luck!
