Re dead motor problem

Hooked up a brushless castle motor esc combo in my short course truck before the winter gave it a quick 5 min test run seemed to run fine. Tried it today freshly charged lipo steering worked fine no engine. Checked connections, reprogrammed my esc tried battery on another car. The motor does not make any sound did not drop it or anything that would damage it. Any ideas on how I can check this motor or why it would cease to work?

Re: Re dead motor problem

Have you tried the motor in a different vehicle or a different motor in this one? First thing you want to do is make sure it is in fact the motor and not some other problem with the electronics. Unusual that a motor would just stop working without some other issue.
