Default Noobie Question

is it ok to run a stadium truck in the rain. Im not talking about a huge downpour, but a light drizzle. I am really new to nitro and I was wondering if this will kill my truck.

water is not good for your engine or electronics. will cause your servo's to quite working till you dry them out. and if your reciever gets wet. good luck chasing it down. no after saying all that. i ran my T-Maxx the other day in a drizzle just fine. no standing water or anything should be fine. just remeber to cover you reciever with a ballon or something to block water.

As long as you protect your electronics from the water, you should be fine. Most cars today already provide a reciever cover, but if not, HPI makes them, they just slide over the reciever and protect it from any water or mud. Servos should be fine, they have O-Rings sealing them from water. And as long as your air filter doesnt get soaked in water, your engine should run fine too, propably better than normal because of the humidity.
