Good thinking but don't think that was it either. Thanks for the ideas

Theres no visible damage to the wires, case, cap on the esc, or any related electronics

¿The Esc, are no power on? , ¿Can you test, with a Ampermeter, motor-runing, etc, and you see a high current? , is posible you broken a cap into the esc, is a SMD cap (100uf 6v) is situate in the center of the low board, can you change for a electrolitic cap, is no posible you find a SMD cap, caution with polarity in the smd cap the line is positive, can you see in this image.


Is the yellow cap in the center, near to diode, you can see a litle brown line is the pole positive.

Check it,

Thank goodness I got to mine before it got that bad. Let us know how LRP takes care of your warranty claim!

Maybe the plan with LRP's lifetime warranty is that if the esc or motor produces big enough "fireworks" your lifetime and their wararnty coverage will expire at the same time!

I put oil in the bearings before the run and I guess it didnt matter , my friend at the same race decided to check his too and as soon as he took it apart the rotor came out in pieces

Thumbs up Novak For Me

I was just trying to figure out Which system brushless I was going to invest in. I wander what a 3.5 Novak with a GTB Novack EsC in ba TC4 would do as far as speed goes. Is Novak the way to go I guess.
