Answer to "How do we repair a wheel that has broken off?"The easiest would be a second car but after searching I found some websites that sell replacement pieces. RC Scrapyard BTS Rack
Answer to "Why is it that all my tires do not turn together?"Check to see if the wheels in the back have been damaged. In the mayhem of rock climbing, wheels can get broken and therefore become unresponsive. If this is the case, check out the Wheel Replacement Guide. If the wheels are fine, it could be a few other electronics issues. First, try replacing the batteries. There is only one motor in the back so the two in the front could be taking the last remaining power. If that doesn't work, there could be a problem with the rear axle. If so, check out the Axle Replacement Guide. If that still doesn't solve your problem, there is probably a wiring issue. In such a case, try replacing the circuit board. Check out the Circuit Board Replacement Guide for help.
Answer to "Why is my truck no longer responding?"Driving through the puddle probably splashed some water up into the truck causing water damage to the motors or electronics. Depending on how deep the puddle was will determine which area was affected. If it was a shallow puddle, the damage is most likely in the motors on each axle, not the circuit board or batteries. The motors are probably no good anymore and if this is the case, try replacing one axle at a time because the damage could be isolated to one. Check out our Axle Replacement Guide for help. If it is a deep puddle, the damage is almost certainly in the axles but it could also be in the circuit board. If it is still not working after troubleshooting the front and rear axles, there are two more possibilities. First, try replacing the batteries and drying out the compartment they are in. Second, there may be damage to the circuit board. If so, follow the Circuit Board Replacement Guide.
Answer to "Why is my truck not driving straight?"Check to see if the wheels are damaged, it's possible one of the tires got ripped while dominating those rocks. If so, check out our Wheel Replacement Guide. If the wheels are all fine, make sure that they are spinning at the same speed. If they are not, the motors are operating at different speeds so you can try two things. First, try replacing the batteries. Low batteries can cause the motors to respond abnormally. If that doesn't work, see our Axle Replacement Guide.
