Default Im a newbie at this!

just got my rc the other day and 2nd day i was thrashing it and it stopd in the distant so i thought it got stuck on something. So i ran up 2 look but the motor was still going but when i accel smoke just came out and didnt move. So i stopd the engine and had a loook. The wheels are like stuck cant turn the front wheels there locked and the back wheels if i turn the right one the left one goes in opposite direction so basically all the wheels are locked. Any idea what could be wrong?

What car is this? If it is belted, check the belts. Check if they are correctly positioned and not worn. Check for any rocks in between the belts and gears. Check for any rocks in between gears and the chassis.

If it has a axis, check for rocks in (or under) the casing of the transmission. It must be a rock, pal. If not a rock, it's dirt that gummed up and is locking something.
