    Usually if their's smoke it's the esc, check the caps on it and make sure their not fried.

    Disconnect the motor and see if the esc comes on and goes through it's normal beep process with the batteries connected and if you have a spare motor hook it up and try it, if no spare then take the motor and esc down to your lhs and have them test it for you. Maybe double check all your connections are tight and no solder came loose.

    If your running the stock Traxxas esc you can plug the Castle Creations link into your esc and your computer after you down load their app and change some settings. It's been a while but I know you can up the LVC and add or delete the beeps.
    Not sure about warranty and your location but I would contact your LHS or where you purchased it from and they might help with warranty to fix or replace your motor, worth a try.
