Default Ripped wires esc\receiver help

Was at the track yesterday, wire came out of the plug that goes into the receiver from the esc. It's a tekin rs pro and I've never delt with anything like this. How do I get the wire back in? Lol

There's a wire and there's a pin. If the wire is still attached tot he pin and the whole ting came out, just slide it back in. There is a teeny tab on the side of the pin that catches in the plug housing and holds things to gether.

If the wire came out of the pin, you need to get the pin out first. You can do this by taking a straight pin and depress the aforementioned teeny tab and push the connector pin out of the plug housing. Once out, you would either need a new pin of the correct size or you may be able to redneck it together iwth a dab of solder.

Had the same thing happen to me right before a big race. I used a servo extention and spliced the new plug on to the esc wires. looks like crap but it works great.
