How do you know weather your ESC is shot?
I just bought a rustler tested it out when I bought it and it was good drove great I get home and it doesnt work any ideas on what could be wrong?? P.s there is no light on the Xl5 at all, battery is fully charged and the remote control has brand new battery's also.
Never mind found the problem, loose wire..

If theres a bullet hole in it... its probably shot.
Seriously though. Hard to know whats wrong without seeing or handling it. A call to traxxas customer service will probably fix it or get you a new one though.
