I don't think batteries can really "explode". Or even get hot enough to set plastic on fire. Maybe melt it but not start a fire.

My bet goes for the ESC catching fire. A guy at my local track popped a batt joint while running and the pack shorted, his esc(lrp quantum sport) caught fire, it toasted the inside of his body rather well. I've seen packs short out big time and they don't explode, they start spitting acid out of the + end of each cell. Not cool...

the guy was runnin with the tmaxxex and he switched packs halfway through the main cause it was 15 mins long so everything got really hot and one of his batts blew up it is not bullcrap, R3VoLuTiOn is right the cells probably vented i have seen it happen to a new pack of 2200 when they first came out not a pretty sight it is what happens when you charge a NIMH pack on some cheap charger designed for nicads and then run it right after its done, it tends to ge hot really hot

It might have been over charge that's why due to over charge in the cell it explore.. Or may either be that the charger have a problem on peak detect voltage setting..
