Default Mud set-up??

Hey guy's, i have my first race tomorrow and it's set to be a wet one! I have a kyosho inferno 7.5 sports mk3. Was wondering if there was anything you guys change for muddy weather such as covering areas to prevent mud build up etc? thanks-Hugh

2 bodies. tear 1st 1 off at ur pitstop during heats (if u do 10min for example). even in a long main it can help. Vray was smart to do this at worlds when they ran in the muck. LOTS of wd40, guards in front of driveshafts from spare lexan.
skinny tires and last but not least.

NO WING!! yes i did say that

Get some good quality winter duty bike chain oil and put it on and around all bearings . Before your heat, spray car to saturation with wd 40 including body shell, run with stronger springs or atleast increase preload, and accept before your race that your going to have to roll jumps

also get the most open tread tyres you can find make sure all holes in rims are sealed and have 4 approx holes in tyres

good racing in the mud is about survival not speed.
