    Did you cut a couple small holes into the tires so the water can escape?

    I dunno... I just give 'er full-throttle for 10 seconds or so with it sitting upside down and pretty much any water in there sprays right out of the holes (if you're still running brushed, hold two tires against the ground while allowing the other two tires to spin. This way the differential gears will double the RPM of the spinning tires to better fling the water out).

    And yes, different tires definitely gets you better handling, but almost any other tire out there gives up some crawling performance I've found. Best to just switch tires for the different uses you have planned.
