So yesterday I ran the stampede for 30mins on 3s, ran great. Put in the nimh battery and something went wrong i set the esc back to nimh mode ran it for 5 mins then it went into thermo shut down mode. I took the battery out it had a temp of 210 deg! Went to run it today and all it will do is cog no power etc. Called up Traxxas and they said send it back, support from them is always great. But my question is do you think the battery could have tanked the esc or was the esc at fault all ready before the battery failure ?

Also I have fans on both the esc and motor, then never passed 130 deg.
