Took my in the snow for the first time last night. IT was fun, it didn't do too well in the deep stuff, but it was still fun.

lol, watch out for your electronics, and rust too. I hope you bagged your RX and sprayed wd40 over everything when you were done.

I thought about taking my truggy out, but didn't want to risk blowing the servo's, even if I do have the Rx ballooned.

If it aint yellow, it aint mine.*

*with a few exceptions.

I really don't think WD-40 helps the servos much.. It works really well at freeing things up but I think it can eventaully cause corrosion.

I think only solution I've ever had luck with when it comes to water and electronics, is sealing them in something such as a balloon, Plasti-Dip, Shoe-Goo, etc.

Me, water/snow, and electronics Isn't exactly a completely rare occourance... Let's just say the mamba was already acquired, and I had some fun before the stock electronics were removed.. This pic is a friend that was out with me at the time with his...

I still don't know how the electronics survived that and not a tuble down 2 stairs..

I didn't to anything to protect the truck from water. If something gets damaged, I get to upgrade. I did dry the truck after with a compressor and used some WD40

Actully you should spray everything espcially electronic with WD-40 before. WD-40 is not a lubricant. It actully a water displacent. It was orginally designed for the US military for the balistic missils. the top of the missile are covered with WD40 in the sylos. That way it will keep the mosture way and any frost build up during the winter month.

We alway have a can in our pit bag. Just in case it rains in the middle of the day during our qualifers or mains. all we do is coat it with wd40 and then we go out and race if on choose to.

It was just a fluke that is also a decent(not good) lubricant.
