Does anyone know what could've caused this? I guess this is why my stock servo fried first? It's a costly upgrade that's for sure. Half the price of the new Kraton in upgrading the ESC and servo, not to mention a new motor most likely soon after the stock motor fails. What next? The diffs? It's gonna get expensive and if it keeps happening, I'm gonna sell it as a roller.
That looks like it was caused by a short. Possibly internal to the esc, but my money would be on the external wiring. Check the red and black wire on the Rx lead off the esc right where it exits the receiver box. I have pinched those there before but thankfully not bad enough to cause a short. If this is what happened, there is an outside chance that esc is still good once those wires are repaired.
