so I ran my kraton yesterday about 5 minutes and it just stopped. I thought my battery was dead. I charged it and nothing. No light will even come on. When I go to plug it in it's a really small spark but no power at all. What could it be? Esc?

Does the steering work? If steering works, swap steering and throttle wires on the receiver, power it up and see if steering will run the motor. If it does then the ESC is bad, if not then motor is bad.

Hate to say it, but this is bad info. If it powers up in the steering channel that does not mean the esc is bad. It is actually the opposite the esc is fine. At that point you either have a programming issue or the throttle channel on the receiver is bad.
