I am a complete begingger into this awesome hobbie, and bought a used E-Maxx 3905, which he converted to a brushless. I am not familiar with the the 3905 model, but i believe it was a 2007 model. I have been bashing my truck in the snow latley, and it is not water proofed. After a week of snow bashing, i went go plug my LiPos in to my ESC after 5 hours of sitting the ESC started to smoke, and took it off about a a second or 2 later and i know it is shot. Are my LiPos done too? I have read a couple other forums that said it is a could idea to throw them out, but at $80 a peice. . .
ALSO, what is the best ESC to to replace it. The owener before had a HPI Flux Blur esc, and i am thinking of buying the new Mamba Monster 2 which claims to be water proof, and buying an overtray. Sorry for the long post, and a reply would be greatly apperciated.
