    Dusty Motors also have a zipper, so you can open and check what's going on inside.
    For example disconnect batteries etc.

    Thanks for the info! Is the Dusty Motors version a type of "bag" that goes right around the underside of the chassis also then zippers up on top, or is it similar velcro mounting like the Outerwears, but with a zipper?

    We've been out tearing up the snow with the Summit as well. The E-Maxx is barely usable, but the summit goes really well once you plow a path through the powder.

    so doing the clean up on the summit post snow run. i have the savox single servo setup and of course its not waterproof. so to fix this issue, before i went out in the snow, i took the servo apart and used silicon to seal it up...and the result is...servo still works i was a little worried about it getting wet and stopping, but the snow driving was fun enough, even if it did stop, it was worth it lol now i would not try to submerge it or anything, but at least i know it can handle some wet running
