    Could be any number or combination of things.

    Bad ESC
    Bad motor
    Bad batteries

    How hot were the motor/ESC/batteries being ran at?
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.

    Hot to the touch means nothing... 130 feels hot to most people. The motor and ESC are comfortable all the way up to 160-180.

    sounds like you've cooked the motor, i think traxxas does a exchange program just like with the TRX's.
    BTW, why do you have HSV CLUBSPORT BUILD#330 as your sig? you relies this is a RC forum, not street commodores?
