The answer is yes as long as you are set up for wet weather racing, balloon around the reciever, sealant around the radio box to stop water getting in, sealant around the wires at the servo to stop water getting into them and last but not least, drown the car in wd40 spray to stop the mud sticking to your arms, chassis & body and have a blast......

Then afterward, immediately clean and dry everything. If you don't RUST will invade your vehicle especially bearings.

Not a good idea.. The mud will put pressure on your engine and all the bearings in your car. You will wind up changing every bearing in addition to taking away from the life of your engine... Not good
