    There is nothing from Castle or Traxxas that is water proof in the 1/18 scale. You may find some other brands on the web.

    May fit with mods but is really for 1/16 scale i'm not completely sure
    Velineon VXL-3m Brushless Power System, waterproof (includes waterproof VXL-3m ESC and Velineon 380 motor)

    Cheers! I have that in my revo and think it may be it a bit too much for latrax. After looking around I'm debating a m troniks g2 micro combo, quite good reviews online and fully waterproofed out the box. I know how to waterproof a esc just don't have time at the mo. Anyone got experience of the g2 or similar?

    VXL-3m esc will fit perfect.



    The 380 will fit, but the bolt pattern is off. Lots of work to make it bolt up.

    Yes it's mine. I didn't run it, I agree that it would be too much for the rally. The bolt pattern is off so you'd have to modify the mount or re-drill the motor plate.

    What kv rating would you recommend? Looking a few different options ranging from 4000 to 6000 kv, I want something quick but not diff destroying. Running 2s. Any ideas?
