You couls use "Corrosion X", a boating rust inhibitor, but it will also void the warranty. How will you get around that?

I don't see the need to want to bash, in the mud with a $280 brushless system.

Just my $.2

Ya it doesnt have the brushless you can buy that but it has the locking diff and its water proof. i got to drive this truck and it is a blast! Such a fun truck. Id get this over the erevo brushless(my neighbor has one) or the emaxx any day.
