35 A esc stoped working

i resently crashed my flying wing and one of the bateries in the 8 cell pack exploded. but that is not the problem. i went to use the esc in a new wing and it will power the servos but the motor will not turn on. i even tryed soldering a new motor on to the leads and still no juice. what could be causing this?

Uh, the crash and resultant exploding cell? Just a guess. Solid state electronics are tuff - but you can break them. Easiest way is to short your motor out (like could occur in a crash) or reverse polarity and on the pack hook up.
