    What battery/s? Where is the smell coming from? the esc is easy to slid out and get close up
    for a
    sniff test.. read the manual also it has many a good info that may help

    Being brushless, there isn't much to burn out of a motor.
    Probably the ESC...
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.

    Disconnect esc and touch all thre motor wires together then try to
    Roll your truck back an forth. If there is drag or resistance motor is probably alright. Traxxas
    will most likely want you to sent motor and ecs anyway. They are great to deal with, at least in all
    of my cases.

    hmmm...do you have another motor to hook that esc up to and see if it will turn that motor? then that would eliminate it being the esc.

    I still think it is the ESC.... but read my sig. lol

    If the motor spins by hand... it is probably ok.
    The only things to go in a motor:
    Bearings
    Over heated demagnetized magnets
    Broken windings
    Over heated de-stuck glue
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.
