Default Driving on wet pavement. Will it riun my electronics?

I just got a new E-Firestorm Flux and Ive only got to drive it once before a a huge snowstorm. But now the sidewalks are dry and the asphalt is only a little damp.

I should be ok just driving on it, right?

It should be ok. If you're really worried, get a roll of Glad Press-n-Seal wrap.

Works pretty good for keep a majority of moisture out. However, the real pain is the water in the bearings and every other nook-n-cranny on the truck. If you don't get the water out, things will start rusting. It's a maintenance nightmare when you run in the wet. Be sure disassemble the hubs afterwards and hose 'em the metal parts (kinpins/axles) with WD-40. If you have an air compressor, I would hit it with that as well.

When you stop running, get as much of the snow off outside as you can. That way it can't melt once its inside and get into something you don't want it in.
