Took my Wraith out of the car, turned it on, it went *fizz*!

The little puff of smoke looked like it was coming from the lipo pack. I was ready to get my hands disfigured to keep my Wraith intact. Luckily, it was the bypass electrolytic caps on the ESC. Cut them off, BEC works, but motor only faintly clicks when applying throttle.
In order of appearance:

I think my Castle Sidewinder 3 finally gave up the ghost. All it does is cog even if I have the wheels off the ground. Same motor and gearing I have been using for about a year now. Tried a different motor and same results.

I think the addiction is bad when you forget you order parts lol.
I lost a car in my house for 2 years. Took it apart, put it in a box while waiting for parts.
