    Parts on the way!

    I have a new cc 3800kv combo and a 2s 5400mah 50c spc lipo on the way, i can't say I'm not it exited!
    Is there anything I need to know about cc motors?
    Are they waterproof?

    The SV2 is now discontinued by Castle and is not waterproof.

    The SV3 is the current model and is waterproof.

    Still a cracking combo by almost all accounts. There are plenty of tutorials on waterproofing options, for example this one:

    is it worth waterproofing it bc I sometimes run after it rains and roads are still damp so I guess I will waterproof it

    Waterproofing will kill your warranty so I wouldn't recommend it. Try an outerwears or something similar to wrap the chassis in to keep out water.
