Run mud guards. Like at the worlds cover the fuel tank opening in the shell with a peice of old tyre. Richen the engine slightly. Up the ride-height slightly (more weight in mud will make it lower....must counterattack it). Spray GT85 on all the plastics and shell. Silicone the radio box openings. Go and have fun and be prepared for a long rebuild session

I used some M2.5 to hold the mudgaurds on, which were made out of some thin carbon fibre sheet. Make sure you use larger washers, otherwise the lexan will crack around the holes.

When its very muddy, I've been using Turbo rats, bought them a few years ago, they only ever come out on the really muddy days. Hobao Angle spikes are good too, never tried the proline badlands.
