    Let me guess you ran two in series. I don't recommend series connector it burns the esc happened a lot of times.

    Have u called Traxxas? Somethin similar may have happened to my brother. They sent him a new esc. the original esc was new when he fried it. I don't think he had connected the series connector. From what I understand the esc is capable of a bit higher voltage than 2xstock nimh so Id be betting its a manufacturing defect than over voltage. There are people connecting 4s lipos with only the safeties kicking in occasionally 10 min into the run.
