Well if you must just dont hit puddles>> You could seal off your electric components.... RC BROS.com has a really good method using (plastidip)

i wouldn't suggest it cuz the water can fly off the wheels and get inside your car. like lowgeared said "if you must".

the jammin buggy is pretty dang sealed up. You can run, but again, why. Nice using both of your accounts to make it lok like someone else bumped it up for you.

ITS BEEN 3 MINS, WHAT'S TAKING SO LONG????

If you need to run it on wet cement, consider making some type of shield or extra casing for any electronics.
