While bashing last weekend my 1/16 Slash went up in smoke. The car stop working (no throttle nor steering). I find out smoke coming out from ESC. Overheated? I thought, but I just started playing with it. So let it cool down and resume bashing. Now, the steering lock left and cannot steering anymore. I dismantled the servo and examine inside components, sure enough (I can smell burnt odor from servo as well) the electonic circuit board fried! However, my ESC working fine even though some area in the circuit board was burnt. Unfortunately, the 30 days warranty expired (I wish Traxxas would consider extended to 1 year coverage at least). Too bad I cannot post any photos attachment to let guys see it. Don't know if you or anyone who's encounter similar symptom like mine. I'm confused why this happening to me!
Have a nice day! :)
