Hello everyone... have the Xr8 plus esc ... I race oval track ... I had been using my 2s battery all day . I put some street ties on that had gotten caked up with the wet clay on the infield.. I put an 3s battery in spin the ties out ... I hit the throttle once the ties didn't spin as much as I wanted so I hit it again ... this time the truck flipped over backwards an then I lost my throttle. NOW all my esc does is flash 4 green lights an repeats this over an over is there away to fix this or send it back to hobbywing ... also the programmer doesn't work as well

Literally from the user maunal:
The GREEN LED flashes a short, quadruple flash that repeats (☆☆☆☆, ☆☆☆☆, ☆☆☆☆) indicating the ESC has failed the self test and it needs to be sent back to the factory for test and repair. (In general, the problem is caused by ESC failure, or motor failure sometimes.)
