Default Is there any easy fix to this R/C problem?

Hi guys, I am new to rctech and R/C as well. I am more into building kit car models by Tamiya, Aoshima etc. I am more into building kit car models by Tamiya, Aoshima etc. Recently a friend gave me this pretty fast 1:12 R/C and while having some, I crashed it but it didn't seem like a major crash to me. After that incident the car just stopped moving forward, it only goes in reverse and the steering works properly too. So I took out the motor to check and everything was in place, the motor only rotates backwards not forwards. Since you guys are all pros can you please point me to the right direction so that I can solve the problem. Since I'm don't know much about R/C vehicles, I am posting some pics so you guys can see what kind of R/C this is and what the problem might be. The remote is simple with just one on/off switch.

Please help me out guys.
Thank you

It's not a hobby grade car and not designed to be repaired.

Do you have a solder iron? You could just swap the wires on the motor, see if there's a throttle reverse on the controller. Hope that can help.

Very likely a broken track on the PCB. However as others have said it's not worth bothering with as it is just a radio shack toy and can be very cheaply replaced.
