Default Steering went out (sprint 2 flux)

Hey guys, recently i was ripping around and smashed parallel into a curb and grinded some gears in the servo box. Right after the crash the steering continued to work for a few seconds then completely stopped. Like i said the the gears in the servo box were messed up but wouldn't the motors still spin or at least make some sort of noise? when i turn the wheel nothing happens so i'm thinking it might be more than just the servo, any idea's?

thanks!

-Vince

Connect the steering servo to the throttle in your receiver and give that a try.
