    I think you overstressed the charger because you was charging 2x 3s 5000Mah Lipos and that's it 126 Watts and the charger can only supply 80 watts max. (If I am wrong, please correct me )

    Just my theory

    The best resource for you at this point would be to contact Traxxas customer service / tech support.
