Help!
castle mamba monster problem

hi

i am have some sort of problem with my combo
its the castle creations 1717 1650kv motor and the mamba esc with cap pack

problem is when i punch full throttle it goes for half a second than dies like batteries are dead i can keep punching full throttle and nothing or acts like it glitching/shuttering,has power in reverse though and the rx light blinks green and red

i tried to re calibrate the the radio/to esc
tries different rx/tx/servo
thought maybe switch the motor wires but that just reverses the motor

help please

batteries are fine they are the traxxas 3s 5000mah 25c (2) of them

Sounds like the batteries can't keep up with the high current drain when punching the throttle. Doesn't mean these are bad, just not strong enough for this motor/ESC combo.
