Exclamation problem with my crawler

Hello I am new to the forums,But not the hobby. I have a axile deadbolt with stock electronics. and when it first turns on everything works perfectly fine but when i start driving it after 5 minuets or so the truck has extreme power loss. like no reverse power and like very slow forward throttle but if i turn it off and back on it works again for 5 minuets.
If you could help thank you

I use lipos. Its 1 am so i cant test anything right now but i put a 27 turn race motor from a pan car in it and it seemed to fix it from testing it in my garage and front yard. so ill give it a real crawling/mudding test tomorrow.

The new motor did not fix it

I took the jumper and took it out of lipo mode and it works fine its really weird

The Axial AE-5 ESC is a piece of junk. Pick up a $16 wp-1060 from eBay (what I use), or better yet get a 1080 for $42. The latter has more settings and can power a medium-torque servo without an external BEC.

That's fine if you run NIMH. You said you run lipo, so you need to protect the battery from under-voltage damage using a $1 lipo alarm:
