Default Stinky Blown ESC!!!

Does anyone know how to remove the smell of a blown ESC along with the nasty brown goo it leaves behind all over the chassis? I just had a ESC go up today, and it is the nasty smelling thing that I can't get to go away!

try some Iosol or some different variety's of Alcohol, Some type of chemical will remove the goo, As for the smell You might have to wait that one out....Or douse the car in Fabreeze

The stink goes away after a few days. just give it a good cleaning with some 409 or something and let it sit on your patio. My D8T-e did a magic trick a while back and it stunk up my cars trunk too which sucked!

A few years back i had this happen to me and i tried using some karosine only bc my father's business use's it to clean ink off of things and for various other things , i just put a little liquid on a rag and it scrubbed off easily for me and got rid of the smell. It smelled like karosine afterwards but after a few bashing session's it went away.

yes my early version MMM finally let smoke out after about 2 years of usage and 5 different cars it also took out my 3 month old venom 35C 4s hardcase. (blow fish anyone? ) I'm not 100% sure what happened by the time I noticed the smoke coming out it was too late everything went into nuclear meltdown. The good thing is it didn't burn down my 3 week old Ve8. I'm not really too mad about it since this is my first ever ESC failure in 2 and half years of E 8th scales.
