    Question What do you have to worry about when driving in snow

    Could the drive shafts to the wheels rust or does that only happen when there's salt on the ground?

    Salt is the enemy. I've been driving in salt-free conditions all winter without any ill effects. All I do is let the car dry out upside-down. If you want, you can put your battery pack in a balloon for added protection. But it's really not necessary...

    So the drive shafts from the Differential to the wheels are plastic No it can possibly be

    So if there plastic they will never rust.

    I drive it in the snow all the time. You dont need to worry about anything, all the electrics are waterproof. The only thing is that I take off the body and turn the car upside down on a towel to dry so as the snow melts it falls onto the towel.

    All the fasteners are metal and will rust with repeated water exposure. I let mine dry in front of a fan to evaporate all water way faster.
