Motor not Spinning Up During Setup Wizard

I have a 960KV medium Brussless motor for RC car, it works with standard ESC, but with new VESC motor is not spinning up during detection. It just waits and comes up with success. Any ideas why this could be happening?? I checked my VESC with a different motor and it works and that one spins up, but the other does not. Is there cases where the VESC is just not compatible with the motor? Any help will be appreciated.

Cheers

Inrunner or outrunner? Sounds like you have an inrunner.

It's Inrunner, should have mentioned it. Why would that make a difference?

If you pick the wrong motor type, you would run into trouble. Probably the motor is not spinning up during detection and you need to increase the currents and lower the ERPM a bit. That can be done in Motor FOC. In that section of VESC-Tool you can tweak the detection process until you have good parameters.

Hi,

This is the model of car we are using. Not sure if it will help, finding it very hard to find specific details of the motor other than what's listed on the page.
