    sand will get in your main driveshaft and it will be like sandpaper on you driveshafts but no sand gets in my gears

    I had problems with sand getting in my servo (stock traxxas). It eventually killed it, bonded up the gears and it ended up blowing a hole in the case by burning the motor out. Sand will work into places no matter what you do.
