    broken receiver wire

    so i was bashing on some huge jumps recently when my vxl-3s came loose and the receiver wire got cut up by the speed control part. how can i fix this or get it fixed? i'm actually in debt to my parents right now, so sending it in to Traxxas isn't an option. any and all suggestions are welcome

    Just take your time,separate the wires from each other,strip the plastic coating,and solider them back together,no worries.
    There's only four of them,or five?four i think I've had to do that kind of stuff all the time.Make sure you use electric tape or something so they don't touch when your done.

    i didn't originally think i could or would do it, but i soldered the three wires together last night with my little helping hand. it's
    not the prettiest soldering job ever done, but it works. i just hope they stay in there and working correctly.

    With the size of the wire it should be stronger where you soldered it than anywhere else !!!

    yeah, the solder part will stay strong, but i'm saying that the little silver wire strands inside might decide to break or pop out if
    i'm not careful
