    It could be either low voltage or thermal shut down, What batteries are you running? what mah? are you using 2-2s =4s or 2-3s =6s. There's a few different ideas in this thread.

    It says: (Thermal Shutdown Protection) The VXL-6s Marine is equipped with thermal shutdown protection to guard against overheating caused by excessive current flow. If the operating temperature exceeds safe limits, the VXL-6s Marine will automatically shut down and the ESC’s red LED will blink. The LED will continuously blink red, even if the throttle trigger is moved back and forth. After the ESC cools down to a safe level, the ESC will once again function normally.
