Here's a few things to check to help you narrow down the problem, if these make no difference, post a reply to this thread with your findings.
First, make sure all your batteries are fully charged, including recharging or putting fresh batteries in your transmitter.
Next, make sure there are no cut, worn, frayed, or broken wires coming from the electronic control unit (ECU) to the motor and the receiver. Also, make sure that the wires are connected with the right polarity, red to positive, black to negative, on the motor.
Then, take apart your receiver box (with the antenna sticking out) and check to make sure all your servo connectors are tight and not corroded or damaged.
Also, with the receiver box open, check to make sure your frequency crystal (silver plug with a colored flag/label) is in tight on both your receiver and your transmitter (it's behind the colored label near the bottom, in the back of the transmitter).
Make sure the frequency crystals are of the same frequency (color and number) on both the transmitter and the receiver. If you haven't changed them out for new ones they should be the same, but you never know. (I.E. if your transmitter has a 27.255 your receiver must have the same exact number, a 27.195 will NOT work with a 27.255 and vice versa)
Next, try purchasing a new frequency crystal set of a different frequency(color) than the one you are currently running. These parts do wear out after a while and even with a new truck they may be defective.
I hope these tips will help you get started and you can always reply with any other questions you may have. If your question is about this problem, remember to post to this thread, I may not be able to find it if you make a new thread for the same problem. Don't forget to rate! Good luck and let me know how it works out!

SOURCE: Traxxas EVX-2 ESC blinks red,
It sounds like the esc needs programmed. The vehicle manual shows how to, or there is a video at http://www.traxxas.com/products/video/support/070911_programESC.htm.
