    Get a new ESC. That is probably your problem.

    We encountered a similar issue with my son's Prerunner.

    Worked fine last we played, a few days later no go. It wasn't dropped, crashed or submerged. Freshly charged battery, ESC has solid red light and we get steering but no throttle. After digging around the forums and trying the few things suggested, I am assuming a call to Traxxas is in order to diagnose the culprit.

    Too bad we discovered this problem during weekend camping trip. Poor kid :/
