It could be a servo glitching out, try unplugging one servo at a time and see if that makes it work. It might also be a sticky power button, a small shot of silicone spray might help free it up if that's the problem. I know it's a silly question but did you make sure to fully charge the batteries? When you say auction do you mean like ebay or something? I'm wondering if the truck is new? If it is the best thing to do would be to contact Traxxas, it wouldn't surprise me if they just send you a new ESC.
