No it is not H20 proof. It is water resistant. If i were you i would keep it away from water or mud.

come on bro. water ressistant means you could splash water on it and not mess it up. but if you were to submerge it in water it would mess it up. waterproof means u can dump it in water.

Looking it up in the dictionary waterproof means something can be submerged for an extended period without damage while waterresistant means it can get wet but shouldn't be submerged or wet indefinately.

Ya i know how it is in washington LOL always raining. On those days go to your local indoor track and have some fun. It might not be the most track worthy truck but it is always a blast,

It's not 'VXL as we know it' though, its a 1/16th sized ESC, so will pop if you try stick a 540 motor on it.
