    ok i put my evader back together today at school and i went to use it and i had no steering. its soemthing to do with the reciever. channel 2 works fine but chanele one doesnt work at all. it worked before i changed the antenna wire. i think maybe i fried something because it doesnt look like the solder is touching anything else. its a traxxas reciever if that helps. thanx for any help

    Try another receiver if you can and if the steering works with the new receiver then you most likely have ruined your original one.

    The miniaturization and surface mount technology that goes into today's electronics makes it all but impossible to repair damaged electronics. Your best bet is to buy a new receiver.
