It was probably just a puddle but look for ne leaks around the head and the header. Maybe you have a leak or something.
Hope this helps

Could just be some oil residue on the head, too!
This happens to me after run an engine thats been in storage for a season.

hi, yes if you hit a puddle then this will most likly be the reason for the steam, the water hit the engine and cooling head and then the water simered.

when i ran my car in the snow, it did that, and it plumed out .. it looked funny

Is there a way to seal up the servos so that water cant get in? Like to hit water or snow or nething?

You might have over strained the engine from rideing on it...lol
Put ballon"s over the servo's and reciever or you could put silicon sealent on the servo where you think water might be gettin in.

baloons over the electronics have prooved to me that they work great. i was running my truck and its a long story but i hit the jump wrong and ran into a ditch of water. the truck was completly in water. but none of my electronics died exept my throttle servos was acting weird.
i wouldnt worry about it i always hit water and the smoke is just the water evaporating
