Default Axial wraith problems

Hi guys,

My wraith is no longer starting, after I ran it through a little bit of water a while ago.... I was wondering if you guys could help me diagnose what is wrong with it. I turn it on and the car powers up for like 1 second and then switches off, if I reconnect the battery it comes back to life for a second and then after that I cant even get it to start. I assume it would be an ESC issue? Also there is like grease over all the components and in the ESC if that is normal.

Help is greatly appreciated.

You either damaged the esc or you have water on the reciever. Best thing to do would be to take the reciever and esc out and submerge them in a bowl of rice for a couple days. Then try it again and don't run in water again until you get a waterproof esc.
