I have an urgent question...

I was playing with my dex210 is the rtr version and was playing at the beach near the water and a wild wave went too far and hit the car... The car turn upside down and the water went up him soaking the motor and differential...
Now the motor don't want to run... It is lost or it is something I can do :/ I have it since Tuesday

Thanks.

The only thing, i think, you can do, is to dry everything up with an hairdryer, or something else!?
Maybe you can open the motor and clean it.

Good luck and hopefully it will get allive again!

Thanks... I guess it is dry there are like 38 °C here...

If i plug it in and start the car I can hear a hiss from the motor when I accel it and nothing moves, it gets super hot in just a few moments

I would say you trashed the sensor board in the motor. Just grab a new motor if money is an issue pick up a speed passion you can find them for $50 or so new. Just make sure your esc and battery are dry and ok.

I justo disassembly it and rinse in water then I put a good amount of w40 on it and let it rinse a little... Plug it back and is up and running again

Thanks a lot, I hope it keeps working for a few days at least...

In the future, use electrical cleaner instead. Rinsing any RC electronics is a bad idea. WD40 leaves a oil like feel. Electrical cleaner won't. Count yourself lucky if it runs for long.

Also be mindful of your motor temp, running in sand could be pretty demanding.

Is it worth the money to go RDRP +11mm? What other options is there?
- Dimec B +8mm
- Some other
- Wait for V2

If I'm going Dimec, then I have to renew a lot more.. e.g. bodies, bumpers, hinge-pin hangers, bulkheads etc.

So what's your opinion. Stock alu or upgrade?

Thanks I will keep it in mind for future events, even when I'm not playing in the sand again :/

Just hope it doesn't break...

Do you think I should buy that and disassembly again and apply that? Will the w40 be a bad thing inside the motor?? How can I lube it then??

Thanks.

I've mounted up the tresrey carbon fiber gearbox support and I haven't taken it out on the track yet but it looks great and seems very very solid. I would say this is how it should have been designed originally. Very inexpensive part to be mass produced I would think. One side note is that I'm not really sure what the extra small holes are for next to the mounting holes. Also, I did end up modifying the gearbox to make it easier to install the ball cups. Perhaps I didn't need to but this looks cleaner and I don't plan to go back.
Either way here's some pics

Its a nice piece and a good way to extend the life of a broken case. The small holes are designed for if you ever ran a sway bar, you would be able to access the pinch grub screws..

Thanks Flame! That's what I thought they were for…but it seems like mounting it the stock way down below would make it line up under the tie rods a little better…no? I guess I need to try it!

That being said…who runs a rear sway bar on their 210 and Why?

Thanks again flame. Always on point

I really want to a longer alum chassis like the RDRP +11 but I don't wanna buy one right now if there will be a longer alum chassis in the V2. Any ideas? Also it seems like the new car should be here anyway….old parts are gone. Kits seem to be drying up…etc. Do we have an ETA?

THANKS!!!

Does anyone know if there are any rear arm mounts available in brass for low roll center?

Where did you find the gearbox support at? Ive checked around and can't find them anywhere. I broke my case at the track last night.....
