    Thumbs up Slash 4x4 is waterproof:)

    Yesterday I ran my slash 4x4 accidently in the ocean.. About 2m deep and it took aprox 10min before getting it up.
    Then it took about 1 hour before i rinse it in the shower and then opened the reciever, motor and esc and
    sprayed it with electronik-cleaner, the i let it dry over night and testet it this afternoon.
    And guess what, everything worked fine. I forgot to spray the servo contact, but i hope it will work when i
    change the contact. Reciever worked even it was soaked in saltwater. Even my lipo worked fine, but i never going to charge it inside the house...
    I sprayed the hole car with lots of WD40 and none ball bearings is defect
    I must say im very impressed by the quality of the traxxas product.
    Now its just wait and see how long it will work

    I think I might soak it again in the shower to make sure all the salt is gone. Did you clean all the bearings as well?

    I agree these trucks are amazing.

    You may want to double check your slipper clutch assembly, bearings, and differentials to make sure the saltwater didn't corrode anything.

    I'd really like to hear the story of how your Truck got 2 meters deep in the ocean.
