I've always been told that it's a definite NO-NO to run Lipos in the wet. Well just last weekend I was forced to run Lipo in the wet... by some endless hustling from fellow RC owners at the time. There were VXL Pede, stock Emaxxes and a stock Slash. Being a prudent guy, I objected at that moment, only to be called,,,err harsh slank word, beginning with 'P' for being a coward.
But to my surprise nothing shorted out, not even the -rumored to be waterproof- Ezrun brushless system. The chassis was hardly visible under that mud. But I didn't want to push my luck and decided not to try another run.
I'm wondering if you guys have any experience running Lipos in the wet? If so please share them, good or bad! And is it possible to protect Lipo from water? I'm not talking about dunking it in water..but casual "friendly" splashes. I was thinking Outerwear shroud for Slash, but it's rather steep.
High powered mud running with brushless and Lipo in a Slash is like watching bikini mud wrestling!!! Intoxicating....now that's adult stuff in the RC world I tell ya, minors please look away
