    Suitable micro servo's



    Call me crazy, but I drove my Summit into a lake last weekend, to clean off the mud

    It went in with no problem, but it lost signal when it got below the waterline
    I had to use a rope to get it above the waterline, and it drove out of the lake easily.

    I killed two of my microservo's though (rear diff lock, and the gear servo), so I need to order new microservo's. I'll probably order 3 or 4, because I expect the front diff lock servo's to die very soon too (judging the other two )

    Anyone know about suitable waterproof (not necessarily lake-proof) servo's. Maybe even some stronger ones than default?

    Thanks for the tip, mine actually died though :P
    I also see I mentioned micro servo's, but ofcourse, the Summit has sub-micro servo's.

    As far as I can see Traxxas is the only manufactures that actually produces these waterproof sub-micro's, so... Is that my only option?

    If so: any tips to get them even more waterproof?

    i use these to replace the micro servos that quite on my summit all you have to do is make the hole bigger so the screaws fit and i used liquied electronic tape to water proof it
