Default after i drowned my mxt 2-s in a river it's back in action.

hi all. some of you might remember my mxt 2-s ran away on me and ended up going full throttle off a jump and went into a river. a buddy of mine amazingly found it about a week or two later, it's been a while but now i got it mostly fixed and it finally started and stayed running for about 5 mins. to make a long story short i had to do quite a bit of work but here she is. tomorrow i'm goin out to run a few tanks through it and see if one of the best rc's made (in my opinion anyway) has been fully ressurected. lol i'll try to get vids too.

to this day the fact that your buddy found the truck at the bottom of the river is one of the most amazing things ever - and it is cool that you have it RTR again!
