    Angry Rustler throttle GONE, steering still works. Help.

    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??

    When you press the trigger do any light light up on the esc?

    It varies. Mostly there is no response. Every now and then the black box would blink red.
