Exclamation bandit vxl problems

ok look i have had my bandit vxl for about 2 yrs. i rolled it at about 60mph and ripped off the white bullet connector on the esc or aka the C bullet connector. now i re-soldered it straight onto the board with the wire cause i lost the bullet connector that goes to the board. it worked. then i rolled it again about a week later going in reverse at 45 mph and it came off . well i thought i could just re-solder it again but this time the engine only twitches and the light on the motor turns off when i partially throttle it but when i fully throttle it the light comes back on the esc. can anyone help? i know the motor is good.

Sounds like the force of the wrecks messed something electrical up by shorting it out. Time for a new ESC more than likely. The bandit is considered to be an Off-road vehicle so I'd post in there for more specialized answers.
