My nephew bought a Slash 4x4 last Saturday. Ran it daily since last Saturday bashing, practicing at the track. He ran a few packs through it this afternoon with no problems. This evening, he charged up the 7 cell stock battery. plugged it in, turned on the ESC and by the time he got the body pins on smoke was billowing out. He pulled the pins and unplugged the battery. Smoke was shooting out the hole where the servo wires exit. Very disappointed to say the least. Does this happen often? Everything was connected correctly. The car was cool and had not been run for a few hours.

He's hoping to get warrantied before the 24th. We have a practice/meet at our local track.
