    check to make sure you didn't change a setting on the radio,specially your neutral setting.Also if you have a newer vxl with a TQ 2.4g series radio make sure the radio is still binded to the receiver .I have seen people have a issue's with the new radios and Rx.Also if all else fails try re calibrating the radio to the Esc.

     I wouldnt waste the $50 if I were you.  If it does end up being junk you would be much better off just putting the $50 towards an aftermarket ESC.  You can get a brushless ESC that will handle 3s for under $100. 

    Traxxas Brushless ESC's = Constant Headaches!
