Could be a couple of things
1. Flooded
2. Cooked the ez start motor
dont think you would have blown the engine since it dident turn over right?

By turned over i ment did you hear the engine? Take the top of the engine off and check out the piston make sure its not broke. not being mean but is this the first time you ran a nitro rc car?

oh i know whats wrong since you dont have an ez start remote its not heating the glow plug. So if u want to use the drill battery you will also have to use a glow plug ignator. That should do the trick to turn it over

What kind of battery did you use and how did you hook it up?

Many drill batteries are over 11 volts. That very well could have burned up the ez start motor. Not the nitro motor, the little electric motor that starts it.

I would also suggest you replace the logic controller. It seems that yours no longer has a control over... logic.
