Default Receiver problems

Hey all,
Got my Exceed RC Nitro buggy yesterday and when I installed the batteries, it seemed like it was receiving a ton of interference. So as I started break in procedures, it got worse and worse. Now, when I turn both the RC on and control on, the steering servo clicks to life, but no throttle, no response from input and no other signs of life. I think its dead hahaaha. My newb input.

anyway, the RC didn't cost much in the first place (120 shipped) but I would like to at least use it. I need to know what I should get for a new receiver. Here is all I know about the one in it....

RECEIVER INFO:
AM 2 Channel
SP-03030
with an AM 27.175 R90 pill

What would work to replace??? Thanks for a quick reply, wanna order parts tonight~

if not its the rx, if it works its the throttle servo

Thanks! I should have been more clear, NEITHER accepts input now. Just seems like the actual radio part of the receiver is dead... What would be a GOOD CHEAP WATERPROOF replacement lol?
