Don't you run a XXX-S??? Drive-train is nicely sealed. I thought the electronics that came with the traxxas slash were waterproof, I've seen video's of knuckle heads running them under water. I think running in the rain could be fun, minus having to (possibly) rebuild it all the time.

The X is one of a few cars I have. I collect them but don't race it anymore. Schumacher is my weapon of choice now.
I've seen Plastidip or something similar. How on earth do you coat the esc and receiver without doing damage ?? I mean...it's called "dip" for a reason. Do you actually dip the receiver and esc into this stuff ??

That Lazy Goo looks interesting too. When you brush it on , can you still see the lights and press any buttons that might be on the ESC ?? Or is this something that may have to be re-applied a couple of times during a race ??

Word, word... I have the X and a Shumacher as well . The X has taken the main in a recently started GT-based class in my town twice in a row now, the Shuie is going to be a carpet machine.

Man I think if you could get some of the water-proof Traxxas stuff you could run all the rain sessions you want.

You mean something like this?

I'd like to see how that does or doesn't fit on a TC chassis...

It can be brushed or sprayed on.

Yeah, probably wouldn't in all honesty... I was thinking the electronics themselves were more or less fully sealed

Receiver circuit board was removed and covered in a 'conformal coating'
I also spray WD40 into the bearings before and after a run but you'll still need to flush them out properly after the meeting.
