    Rovan 1/5 Baja landed in a creek

    So...
    My first venture into 1/5 and I put it into a freshwater creek, should of turned left not right.


    So what should I watch for?
    It was in 2 feet of water and stopped when I got to it.
    Got it home and pulled out the battery pack and reciever and gave a dry with the wifes hair dryer.
    Pulled pull out and gave a pull all seemed smooth.
    Cleaned airfilter and re-oiled.
    New tank of juice.
    About to try to start it tomorrow.

    Plus a bit of assistance in adjusting throttle would be hand (had to disconnect it to remove reciever pack)

    Sorry mate, not many large scalers on here anymore, head over to largescaledownunder.com.au

    In the mean time, you should pull the motor and check/clean the head completely, as it will likely have gotten water in.

    Electronics are likely to be fried.

    Personally i'd grab a new battery and check each component individually. You may get lucky, but knowing rovan quality, i dont like your chances.

    I wouldnt purchase anything until you know everything you need, as it may end up being cheaper to get a new car, using this one as a spare parts car.
