Default fried ESC?

Is it possible to have fried a basic Tamiya TEU-101BK ESC by using Deans connectors? I ask because I just went all Deans on my toys... when I went to connect a battery pack to the ESC on my Mini, I heard a pop then a faint smell of burning plastic. Now the ESC won't turn on.

The deans would not have caused that. But if you miss wired the POS and NEG wires you could definatly fry the ESC... Most common error is mixing up the NEG wires blue for black

Damn you're right, I just looked at it. I messed up the connector on the ESC. Oh well, at least it wasn't an expensive ESC.

Thats to bad, sorry it turned out to be that... I sold an ESC to a guy last year and felt really bad for him as he wired it up the same way u did. Im glad he was honest about it cuz i had told him how great it performed for me.
