    Rustler Will Not Work

    I have my rustler, not sure specifically but it does not work right, when I turn the steering wheel it throttles it, and the actual throttle itself does nothing. Please
    help!

    Have you opened up the box where the receiver is? It sounds like the wires are in the wrong places. The steering goes in either of the places marked #1. The esc plugs into the #2 position which the third place to plug wires into.

    100% in agreement. Sounds like the ESC & servo connectors were placed opposite what they should have been. Humans make mistakes.

    I'm new to the high-end RC community. My five-year-old son could spend all day watching Traxxas videos on YouTube so I bought in the rustler VXL. Ran great for weeks, through rocks, sand, shallow puddles.
    Question- I have lost all throttle after a session involving many puddles. Could the water have ruined my esc? My steering servo still responds the same.
    I took the box top off next to the esc and it looked dry. Can't figure out where my throttle went.

    When I squeeze the trigger there is no sound, no response at all. Any ideas??
