    Lol. I want one of them but prob won't get one. I'm still stock electronics so I'm not worried about snow or water gettin under the hood. I just make sure I dry it and lube it after every run.

    The old lipos were not as safe.
    salt water or slush with salt in it could maybe cause a issue,I have not sealed mine and do this no issue. its near
    The end.

    Wow. That's the terrain I want to to play on. High range would be a hard to resist going up some of those hill climbs.

    I have heard of people using dielectric grease on the balance tabs, to prevent rust never tried it myself as I don't submerge them very often. I usually run a outerwears cover if I'm getting muddy or snow just for ease of clean up and trail repairs.Now I'm not saying run out and drive under water but a bit of snow or rain is not a big issue.I still won't run my tekin in there in fall and winter.yet lol

    I'm definitely not looking to drive it under water, that's for sure. I'll have to brave some cold and give it a shot tomorrow

    Worst case i suppose i could run it on the NIMh's... bah who am i kidding, they never even got hooked up to a charger when i bought the summit.
