Exclamation My electronics just quit working on my wraith

Ok so I have a axial wraith and I'm a new person at this whole RC thing but I've done about $100 worth of mods but I've barley had a complete run time of a hour total since bought brand new less than a month ago....so electronics wise everything's stock and after completely putting all new gears in the tranny (replaced all the plastic ones) I just got the tranny put all back together and was so excited to get it out (the wraith) and had it in the yard for not even 5 mins reverse completely quit and then about 2 mins
Later forward went out. Now when I try and turn it on its jus a little clicking noise from the motor and the ESC don't make any noise when turned on like it used to? I dunno if I need a new ESC or motor but I think or it seems like it's sumthing in the electronics? Sumone help please!?!

First lets go through the obvious things first.

Is your battery charged?

What are you using for a battery?

Are the transmitter batteries charged and working properly?

Maybe something is bound up in the tranny since you just took it apart and put it back together and it overheated the ESC/motor?

I second that, any time you reassemble a trans or dif, pretest to make sure it is free flowing, no binds, what you may thing is a minor bind can bog a 20t axial motor down and heat it up a bit. I would definitely take your drive shafts off, check your difs and your trans, if they roll smooth, put the shafts back on and try it as a system. If you experience binding one of your upgrades might have adjusted the angle of an axle and is causing binding there. You could have gotten a fluke and its just a dud or something could have gotten wrapped in the motor and caused it to over heat there( buddy burnt out his with some thick wet grass that was grabbed by brush fans and wrapped around inside, DoA there).

It has already been said but if you just worked on the tranny my bet is that whatever issue you are having is probably with said tranny.

You also never said if the steering still worked, or if all the electronics are dead? Could be something as simple as a motor wire came unplugged, or came off. I would check that first. I guess its possible that there could be some binding in the transmission, but that's pretty straight forward to get apart and back together. Seems like something simpler to me.

Question Re: My electronics just quit working on my wraith

We'll I have took it apart and now when the battery is hooked up (it's a venom 7.4, 5000 30C lipo) it just makes a clicking sound? It still rolls and everything so I know that the tranny is still fine and the front and rear diffs are rolling fine...whenever I hook up the battery now, with the ESC unhooked from the motor, the ESC just keeps making this clicking sound and the red and green lights on the ESC keep flashing with the ticking noise? The remote won't do anything and yes the battery's in it are fine...I'm thinking the ESC is messed up but it's literally barely had a hour run time on it since bought brand new?! And also whenever u hook the motor back up to the ESC and (turn it on) the clicking noise keeps coming from the ESC and also from the motor and on the ESC the red and green lights keep flashing together?

And when I turn it on, I have no steering or anything? Only thing I get is the clicking/ticking noise....the controller doesn't respond in anyway possible?

My guess is that it is a castle ESC?
It happend to me twice, once with a Mamba max pro, and once with a Mamba XL2

Filmed the MMP in the wraith https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gFFRvtaRx6E

But I have no idea on what causes it
