Default Fried ESC?

I ran my rig today to test out my gmade nr02 wheels, she popped a wheels and died. Something started burning (smoked), ESC was super hot. It wasn't on for more than 15 secs but you can feel head from the bottom of the skid that the ESC sits on. I'm sad now, will be called Traxxas tomorrow but I'm already pass the 30 day warranty.

You guys think it's the ESC too?

only 15seconds wow. I'd say u plugged it in backwards but not with traxxas connectors you didn't. guess it was just your XL5s time.

Which battery was this with?

Can't imagine running the plugs backward even if I tried to. I've been running the same 3S 5000mah traxxas ID lipo since I got it late June. I'm hoping to get it back and running as I planned on taking it to Florida with me on vacation. :(
