Mini Z For sale : big deal

Selling a complete mini Z with 1 fried FET (just the forward one). Fit a new Fet or just put a turbo and u are ready to go.
I have pictures of all the pieces and this "kit" includes radio.
I'm from Portugal, Europe and i can send pictures to those who are interested in this good deal.
Selling for the best offer.
thank you

I hate to tell you this, but if you have a fried FET, a turbo isn't going to fix it. It acts as a relay, taking the signal from the motor leads, and if one doesn't give a signal, then the motor still won't get any power, turbo or not.

How does the turbo know when to send power to the motor? From the original motor leads. That's why every turbo has 2 wires that screw down to the ESC in place of the old motor wires. A turbo will stop the original FETs from frying in the first place, but if a FET is burned, that corresponding motor lead will be dead... so it will not send any signal, and the turbo won't send any signal.

I was under the impression that the FETs are dual channel.
They both handle forward and reverse. If this is the case,
both of War Master's FETs are half-fried.

I think you are wrong because the mini z still moves backwards.

Ken , I actually thought that one FET handled the reverse and one forward , so if one was fried the car would only move in one direction. I currently have this problem , so does that mean I need to replace both stock FET's on my ESC?
