    T maxx electronics dont work

    after a bash the other day it was kind of acting funny after i shut it down. So i brought it inside and checked make sure everything was dry. The receiver had a few drops of moisture in there. Took it out let it air dry. Today i wanted to see if the problem was resolved...Well its not. I have nothing. Servo moves when i kick the power button on the truck. But that is it. Did i ruin the receiver?
    Its a TQ system

    Ouch. No steering, nothing, other than an initial servo twitch when turned on? Worst case I see them on Ebay for $25-$30 bucks.

    If it's not 2.4 I would go for it, wouldn't even think twice. I saw a 2.4 with receiver on there for $38 bucks. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Traxxas-TQ-2...item20ce924bed

    Make sure your batteries are good. Then reprogram your receiver. My truck went for a swim. I let the electronics sit in some rice overnight. All is well for me.
