Default esc tricks

i got this pile of junk ipc pro sport, and the cover is the uglyiest thing, paint scraped off, all that stuff. I took it all of, and remembered that i saw a car with something like cellophane wrapped around it. What specifically is that? I don't want to use the cover again, plus i like the exposed electronics thing. I'll only be running it on carpet, so it don't matter about dirt.

I use single cell shrink wrap to hold together my ATOM esc. I cut out the area for the heat sink for ventillation. I still keep the original shell coz I don't want to expose it to heavy side impact on oval racing. I also use single cell shrink wrap for my GM V3r on my micro Motek EXO2 car but without the casing to save on weight.

Off-road guys use shrinkwrap on ECS to try to ward off water intrusion.
