    So after several hours of total driving, bashing, and speed runs, I have fried the esc fan apparently. I pulled a fan out of my buddies and used it but the wires from the esc to the power switch and reciever are shorting out causing the fan to stay on with the power off. I have an email out to HPI to see if they will replace it. In the meantime I ordered a MMP and a 3800kv motor just for the hell of it. Maybe I'll sell my old combo if HPI replaces my esc.

    I also built the bench pictured just for my buddy and my RC purposes.

    I'm surprised the ESC would fry like that being so new

    The esc still works there is just a short in the fan causing it to stay on and the first fan burnt up.
