So this is what happens when you race 2 cars on a weekend and rush too much connecting the battery. Definitely no fault of speed passion as it was my idiotic mistake.

I must have forgotten the car on, connected the battery the wrong way and the damage was done. 2 seconds later smoke poured out of the esc. Lucky a fire didn't start and I was able to disconnect the battery. Though my friend put the temp gun on the esc and it read 250degrees celsius. I pulled the esc off the car then, concerned it may damage the chassis with excessive heat. I'm hoping the motor and battery are ok (no puffing on the battery 2 days later).

So just be careful when connecting your battery regardless what esc you use!
