Title: Repaired my TRAXXAS SUMMIT MINI
Post by: merin_83 on December 15, 2011, 10:43:35 PM
Hi Guys, i repaired my TRAXXAS, and replaced the ESC. I guess it was the mud which got accumulated over the mechanical switch of the ESC module. The other electronic components were water proof. I am attaching the some pic of the same.

Sweet. This seems to be a problem with all the VXL ESC's...

Its very important to clean your car after each run. It is very critical to proper working of the components. Just take it to a water wash and use compressed air to brush and clean off.

correct but what happened was, just see ESC as such, its a perfectly neat equipment, I found the mud only when i opened the ESC. The mud have creaped in through the heat dissipation fins i guess.
