Default Losi Mini Steering Problem-Need Help

My little one grabbed his brothers Mini Rammunition and with both hands proceeded to turn both front wheels outwards, which was followed by a popping noise and now no steering.

This setup uses two steering servos, but I have never worked on it and don't know quite what to do or how to fix the problem.

If anyone has any suggestions it would be most appreciated.

Thanks for all the help.

You should try putting this in the Micro/Mini forum.

What does it do when you try to steer? It might have stripped the gears on one of the servo gears, known to be kinda weak. The gear sets are available fairly cheap.

That's a good question. He broke it last summer, and when I went to turn it on after your post the battery is dead, but the front wheels are completely free moving, no servo noise is heard.

Yea that would have been the smart thing to do. But unfortunately, I didn't look down that far to see that there was a mini category. Someone once told me "you can't fix stupid"
