    Back in the day, I used to save shower caps from hotel stays and stretch them over the entire chassis. I would put a couple of strips of electrical tape on the bottom and it worked pretty well. You just have to monitor the temps because there is no airflow. Usually I had no problems, because the only time I did it was in the winter and the ambient air temp. kept things in check for the most part.

    Outerwears do a cover which is somewhat water resistant and breathable, though some imagination with an old milk carton or pop bottle can craft something quite workable too.
    Keeping the Mods busy is my specialty...

    I did a similar thing with my slash. I used a thin plastic "Beware of Dog" sign from the local hardawre store, trimed and velcored it to the chasis (both in the front and on the back) . Then I taped and glued some schreen mesh to span the distance from the front plastic shield to the back shield. I was more concerned about debri than water, but I think it provides more protection from water than just the overscreen mesh. I would watch the temps with the over trays, people have reported no problems, but your results can be diferent.

    You could try a smaller body for a different truck then modify it to fit? Hope that helps.

    Any temp issues with that on? I'm assuming the ambient temp you were in would help out but more so thinking for being able to run in rain

    Agreed!!I think that this cover is more for winter bashing on day below 0 degree celcius!!

    Looks really nice. If it wouldn't be too much trouble could you post link to the product? I'm a fail on site navigation.

    So to be able to buy one of these, you have to go to the website and send an email? There is no online store that sells these?

    The websites in French so unless you speak the language you're best to just send an email.

    Do you know if this guy still makes these? I still cannot find a Over tray, and just blew up my ESC because of water damage.

    all the lexan bodies seem to work for the T/E maxx and Revo, so that OuterWear overtray should work as well right?

    I am not sure if i am blind, but i dont see any different part numbers on the link you sent me, and then i checked the products for E maxx, and all they have is shocks. This should work fine.

    We got blasted with snow today in Kansas and of course everything was shutdown. Took the truck out bashing and had a blast. After seeing how packed the snow was inside the chassis I realized it's time for a shroud.
