Post XP SC450-BL. Decent or Not?

Hey everyone, I have an SC10 RTR Brushless truck that is about 1 month and a half old. The ESC (XP SC450-BL) seems to be decent for just out of the box. However, just the other day, while driving the truck. it just up and stopped. it is responding as if the lipo cutoff was engaged. the battery was full, so i swapped batteries and tried another full lipo, same result. One thing i noticed was that the ESC was SUPER HOT. Now it wont respond, i get basic wheel spin forward and backwards, but very very slow. the ESC wont even make the "beep" sounds when it is turned on.

So, based on your experiences, is it a decent esc for starters? What is your opinion on the best "Mid Range" ESC for someone who cant spend a ton of money but will get a decent unit?

I really liked my castle sidewinder with the reedy 3300kv motor. It was smooth with no cogging. I like that you can prgram maximum throttle and brake (castle link). It is a great basher/friend truck setup. If you do plan to race seriously I would step up to a sensored ESC and motor.
