    Running in rain?

    is it safe?

    I'm wanting to go out and try my new ramp.. but it's raining out (not heavy).. I know it's somewhat water-proof... but how much?

    thanks

    I would say that is pretty waterproof. I ran mine in the rain a couple days ago with no issues. I might try the pool next

    I swamped mine in the water running on the beach two days ago 3 different times last tuesday and it's still running today. I opened up the receiver box and there wasn't even a drop of water in anywhere near it. I'm an electronic technician in the Coast Guard so I am used to looking for signs of water intrusion. This thing is awesome, my kids hate it because they can't weren't able to run their Bandit and Rusty yesterday in the and I could. Definitely waterproof on this one.

    what a blast!!!!!

    Ran it while it was raining heavy! Ran it through deep puddles too. Wow, haven't had that much fun while in rain for awhile... had to take a hose to clean it off.

    That last pic is crazy! That's a dirty truck for sure. Looks like it was fun.
