Today I took my Hyper-7 for a blast on wet grass and during some tuning adjustments ran her without the shell on. During my session the car got VERY dirty and quite wet but not enough to risk hydrolock or water ingress into the engine.
I then cleaned the car and to do this I use the showerhead carefully aimed at the suspension arms/wheels/etc and other parts that would normal be subjected to spray from wet conditions driving. Only today I was a bit of a cannon with the showerhead and got some water on the main guts of the buggy. I opened up the receiver box and there was a few mm of water at the bottom of it and the electronic equipment was wet. I've dab dried it and will now leave the buggy for a considerable period (likely weeks) before I fire the electronics up again.
I'm confident that the receiver, etc will all dry and be fine and even if they aren't they are not that expensive to replace. However, my servo's are both hi-torque ones and were only recently put in at a cost of £80. Despite being sealed units my fear is that they are wet inside. My question is therefore, what do I do?
a) leave it for weeks as planned and sealed or not everything will dry
b) attempt to open and manually dry the servo's (I think I could do this despite my limited knowledge)
c) not worry as the chances 'spray' ingressing into the servo's is small
d) something else.
In case you can't tell I just use the Hyper-7 for bashing about in and am not very experienced. That said I want to avoid silly extra cost if I can.
