Hello, I have a Traxxas E maxx Brushless edition. I’m not the biggest tech head on RC cars. I accidentally put the car through water and it started smoking up. I Just want to know if it’s repairable. Most people I have spoken to have said it’s basically a right off. Just want to confirm it with the community. Thanks

If you replace the part that smoked it will be fine

Whats up bud? Yeah electric and water don't mix really.. so what smoked the esc, motor, servos, lipo,.. are they stock electronics? All depends how much water? Or id it go swimming 🤔🤣.. its a 50/50 shot as to if it's done or not..could take it apart and see what fried..Or if they are stock Traxxas electronics. I would highly recommend replacing them...The Traxxas T/E maxx line are basically the same. Except the chassis.and tranns.. it all come down to how much $$$ you got to spend to fix it..
