The stock ESC is fine, just don't get it wet.
But if you do want to upgrade it, the RC4wd outcry duel motor ESC is great. Can handle more power, has turbo BEC(which give more power to the servos)
I like tower pro, MG996r servos....cheap, metal gear, stronger than stock.
You can run a 2s lipo on stock ESC, but it does not have Low Voltage Detection. so, either run a Low voltage alarm (cheap on ebay) or be like me and run it until you notice a sharp decrease in power and stop running right away. Ive never hurt a lipo doing this, but if you are new to lipos then don't try this.
Which radio does your truck have, the FM or the 2.4ghz version? If it is the FM version, then it is VERY likely that is the issue. Those radios were not the best, and very glitch.
Also, when did you buy them? Redcat has a decent warranty.
