I charged up my traxxas 5000mah 3s lipo. I plugged it in its about 18 degrees f outside. it started to go slow so i picked it up and gunned it and it maybe hit 15-20 mph. Then all the wheels got locked up so i took off the top and the esc was smoking!
should i call traxxas or what. I got it last christmas.
It is out of warranty, but call traxxas. Can't hurt

Definitely call and explain the situation to the techs
Same thing happened to mine when I made this video a couple months back
Gave them a call and they said to send it in with my info (no RMA# given)
Sent it in and they sent me a brand new replacement no questions asked and my truck was already 2 years old
okay ill try that on monday thanks
Smokeing ESC is never a good thing, Traxxas has a great exchange program. I was shocked when I saw the retail price of the motors and ESC's
