Default Vorza Gone Through Puddle and Cut Out

Hi Lads

Had a slight accident today after our Vorza glanced off a kerb and fliped into a puddle at full speed.
There was no damage to the car but it started stuttering and then totally cut out.

So far i have dried the car out with a hair dryer and took the ESC out
Receiver was dry as a bone but when i took the ESC apart the circuit board was soaked and full of sand and grit.

Do you think the ESC is blown !!

Or can you get the ESC repaired ?

If it is the ESC i'm gonna have to think of a way to protect it more - ESC's cost an arm and a leg

Cheers
