Default Can I re-solder a waterproof esc?

Iíve had a castle sidewinder 3 for about 8 years now and the positive wire tore near the solder point. Because itís waterproof, Iím having trouble accessing the solder point because itís encased in an epoxy of some sort. Any ideas to get it out?

It is possible if one has the right tools and skills, it would rank very high on the difficulty scale. Good Luck

Just grind away the epoxy from the area that needs repair,, when done seal it up with new epoxy or silicon,, then run it like you stole it

Shouldn't take any special skills IMO
