Default Help with ESC Selection!

I went to run my F1 car the other day and it started going completely haywire. Full acceleration front and back, random turning and jerking around until it crashed. I tried a new receiver and controller, along with a couple of new locations and same thing. Also tried adjusting the throttle and steering, nothing. I am guessing the ESC is bad.

I bought the car used, so I don't know that much about the components. It has a generic motor and ESC, so I am having a lot of trouble finding out what type of ESC to pair with the motor. The motor says, "Brushless Motor Racing For 1/10 Scale S3650 4 poles". I am also pretty new to the RC game, so trying to find an ESC is really frustrating.

Can someone recommend an ESC that will pair with this motor or what parameters I need to be searching for? I am running a 2-cell 4000 lipo motor as well. Thanks!

What radio transmitter/receiver do you have?

When buying used, get to the manufacturer's website and download the manual for the RC you have. Read about binding your transmitter and receiver instructions (assuming you're using 2.4ghz system), and calibrating the ESC.
