    Erevo Outerwears

    Who uses Outerwears? And do you trust them enough to use in the snow with a Mamba Monster setup? Just ordered a set am I am wondering if I can trust them in snow.

    Thanks,
    Clay

    They are fantastic, I water proofed my Esc using liquid tape but after fitting the shroud don't think it was needed. I am bashing in serious wet snow, sometimes the car just looks like a giant snow ball, when I get inside, put it in the bath, shower it off. Off with the canopy, some more showering holding the car at the right angles so the water doesn't follow gravity...all dry inside, great product. When fitting it, I concentrate on getting it tightest in the front.

    I bought the Dusty's cover, liking the zipper... Only took about a week to get...
    We have yet to get any snow, or rain for that matter...
    Would you go flip my truck back over??

    i pulled the plug on a Dusty's cover on Friday night, gave up on finding one locally distributed. Decided to take my chances on a shipment from Lithuania heading into the Christmas season. Hoping i might see it mid Jan lol.

    I'm actually going to install velcro on 3 of my ERBE chassis based vehicles too so that i can just swap the cover back and forth.

    Cant drive them all at once, and definitely don't feel like spending an additional $85-90 for covers...

    Does the Dustys cover wrap all the way around? If so would be a little concerned about the bottom getting torn up.

    Cool, its hard to tell with the photos posted of it. Kinda looks like it wraps all the way around and cinches in the front and back. I like the idea of the zipper too and just might have to order up a couple of them.

    No prob man, and yeah as far as hop-ups go the Outerwears is by far the best bang for your buck on the E-REVO Brushless.

    My plan is to install velcro on both my ERBE, Eslayer and Summit and just swap my cover back and forth.

    Davyjones That is all it needs to repeal splashes. The Velcro works well but be sure you clean the plastic real good to get good adhesion. And no this product does not make your car into a submarine. It is a close nit mesh screen and it acts like a ducks back as in water just beads up and runs off.
    My thing was just to keep the rocks and other unwanted stuff out of the car chassis. We race in a hay field and hay will fill up in your car pretty fast. But these covers keep it out.

    I have an OuterWears but really like the looks of the Dusty Cover. Does it attach w/ velcro like the OuterWears? And where did you find them in the US?

    I have a dusty motors cover, yep it uses Velcro to attach. Think they only sell through ebay.

    Dusty motors cover for me. After having an outerwears on a few other vehicles the zipper just seemed like an obvious addition. Super annoying to have to take the cover off every time you need to get at anything on the chassis.

    Yes it will fit the summit also. You can do a search through google and find them else where other than ebay. But what ever floats your boat. End result is a dusty motor on your truck.
    If its not breaken then your not racing.

    I'm thinking of ordering one for my Summit, just wondering how long it took to get to you? I'm in Calgary.

    Still waiting. I think it shipped Dec 14th.
    Would certainly have paid a bit more to buy this NA local but i couldnt find them anywhere on this side of the pond.

    So here is a question on the Dusty Cover........Do you still have to undo the Velcro to change batteries? This is my main complaint on the OuterWears brand; after time the adhesive on the Velcro starts to let go. I’m hoping you have better access to the batt doors by unzipping the cover????

    I've had velcro holding my body on for quite some time now, no sign of it even starting to loosen. I found some low profile velcro locally.

    You still have to remove the cover to gain access to the battery doors I'm afraid.

    I live in Calgary and was able to pick up the Outerwear from PM Hobby craft for $47 and it works great. I think you have a PM Hobby Craft in Edmonton.
