    Wink Drive your engine in water?

    If u drove your engine in the water by acident and none of the servos work... open everything especially the recivers and dry it, with a hair dryer or a blower. dry everything..open your engine and clean it with fuel. than when your done put it back together.. start it and have fun

    that will probably work for sure on the engine if done right away. the servos on the other hand dry those off to. if there is no corrosion on the circuit boards it should work. (i think don't quote me on the servo part)

    Use contact cleaner to remove the water from the engine and after-run oil to relube. Open all the electronics to expose the circuit boards and put them in a bowl of white rice. The rice will absorb any moisture.

    I drove my 1/16 summit in water and my water proof reciver box wasnt fully on and it stopped working. I took it apart let it sit out for a couple of days. put it back together and it worked perfectly. Drying is the key!

    First dry it if it not dry properly then Use contact cleaner to remove the water from the engine and after-run oil to relube.
