    So is it solid red? Is it solid green on the controller?

    Everything isn't normal... it isn't functioning. That is why we asked for LED colors.

    They are wondering if when it stops running, if you look at the esc, is the little light on it blinking? What color is it? Is there anything similar on the radios light?

    Rapid green LED on the ESC = Throttle neutral is out of adjustment.

    Reset the controller and rebind to the receiver.
    Next step is to recalibrate the ESC to the controller.

    Yes.
    The issue is not with just the radio... it is the communication between the radio and the ESC. Resetting the radio and recalibrating removes all settings and starts you fresh. It does not even need to be a Traxxas radio for my advice to be sound.

    We likely know of a lot of places you can get one, but what do you want to replace it?

    Do you want something that is like what you had, do you want something that is faster, what price range are you lookng at?

    Did you buy your Maxx new, or did you buy it used? If it is new, you could send your current ESC in for another one.

    It really helps to give us as much info as you can on your problem. allows us to narrow down what is wrong and how to fix it.

    I am curious as to how it was diagnosed as bad.

    The best way to describe your problem is take a video of the esc, receiver & transmitter with the problem your having. Upload it too youtube, then post the link on here.
    I am not sure if there is two types of flashing on esc, fast and slow. Or just one kind speed of flashing.
    Guide books aren't part of the packaging.
