Default how to make my tamiya tamtech gb03 float on water?

Hi All, i need some advise.

i just bought a Tamiya Hotshot tamtech gb03 4WD (ready set) from Startek / Singapore last week. Upgraded the ESC to Tekin Mini Rage with 8.0KV brushless motor.

It can travel fairly fast on land. For the next frontier, i want it to travel on water (inspired by some youtube video). i think i have 2 challenges: 1 of course is to make it float, 2nd is to prevent water from contacting the ESC. The problem is the temperature of ESC is quite high, if i wrap it with a balloon to prevent water from entering the ESC, i afraid that the balloon will melt.

Has anyone here successfully made their RC car float & travel on water? Kindly share your method. Many thanks in advance!!

Just buy an RC boat, it will be cheaper and easier.
