Take all the electronics out and put them i a bag of rice for a few days , the rice will draw all the water out.

It's blown. Sorry that happened to you. There is sometimes a 30 day warranty on the electronics. I suggest the dynamite system's Taser ESC. It is waterproof, and it has a 5 year warranty on it.

My Ridgecrest esc showed the same thing. Steering worked but no throttle. Axial sent me a new radio system and the new receiver fixed the problem. It wasn't the esc. I also bought a Flysky GR3F receiver and it bound and worked perfectly. This system was an AE3. Hope this helps you.

Not sure how confident you are in modding your rig but do some research on Plastidip and other rubber cement type water resist methods for your esc. There is also techniques of marine grease and O-rings for stock steering servos. For your receiver I would look at receiver boxes and either buy one that is designed to be water proof or resistant and lay some marine grease around the openings of that as well. Hope this helps. You tube has some how to videos I would watch before even buying supplies to attempt any of these methods of making your electrics water resistant.
I have done this on my scx10 and haven't ever had a problem with clear water. Mud clogs my stock motor >.<

Or spend money on the warrantied water proof/resistant electrics.
