hey guys a buddy of mine just got a brushless e revo today and he didnt know it wasnt water proff till i mentioned somthin to him so for his sake what is it he needs to water proff and how can he water proff it?
To waterproof the esc will void the warranty. Did he buy it new?
You can use Outerwear. It will help in wet conditions
yup brand spankin new .... outerwear is just that bag like cover over the chassis right ? and just so ik what is it u do to water proff the esc
Yes, outerwears is my suggestion or you can get the Dusty motors shroud which is a little cheaper.

well we live in WI and we have snow now so will he be good to run in snow with the outerwears or is that risky .... and he said he dosnt care about the warranty part of it so what dose he do to water proff the esc
I've ran my revo a few times through snow. A few drips of water pass through after a while, but nothing bad. I would say it works pretty well in snow .
Well slap a MM2 ESC in there and you should be set. Just be sure to remove all snow from metal parts before it has a chance to melt so it doesn't rust anything.
You could try the Mamba Monster 2 ESC but I've head they are having problems with it. Also a more expensive solution.

Proof not Proff.... just saying
I would also recommend the dusty motors or outerwears. Lot cheaper mm2. Used it in snow not a drip of water got through.
I would sell the MMM & buy a MM2.
Then still run a cover, they are cheap...I don't like all the snow pack on top of the truck, makes it even heavier...

Would you go flip my truck back over??
Truth be known none of it is water proof. Maybe extremly water resistant. No matter how you slice it you must have an opening of the tops of the FETs to dissipate heat. No matter what you put on it to seal the edges around the tops of the FETs it will expand and contract and possibly crack over time. Best case scenario is a gap will form and allow a path for water or even just condensate to get in.
The outer wears is probably the best solution to keep the water from getting near it in the first place. If you really want to make them repel water even more toss them in the dryer with a few dryer sheets.
Yep, with these high deltas in temperatures it's almost impossible to get it totally waterproof. But a MMM2 + outerwears should be a pretty bulletproof combo, or must i say, waterproof
I use a cover for the esc only from outerwears and it is a good thing and cheap. For me it was to place because of the short wires of the esc to the motor.
Do outerwears make such things for a servo my savox isn''t waterresistant, or something else to keep it dry?
get the new MMM ESC2 it is waterproof
Only a small cover for the ESC also increases temps at the ESC, you're probably better off with the full shroud .
I plasti dipped my ESC...the rest I just blow off with compressed air after I'm finished.
Rock n Rolla !
You can send the Mamba Monster to castle and do a upgrade to the MM2 plus cash.
