Thats right! This electric beast can walk on water. This truck takes some serious abuse in a great session of water damage! This thing hydroplanes like a champ! Great fun. Enjoy the video!

Thanks for the kind words! This truck is pretty tight. The electronics is claimed by traxxas as waterproof, so I wasn't to worried because they will honour it in warrantee. But I also have special water tight tires and foams, the truck has a high walled under tray that brings up sidewalls right up to the body, so that helps keep A LOT of water out, as well as covers the servos. All it takes is some planning and preparation and you can have a wicked water bashing beast as well.

They looked like trenchers on sealed beadlocks, prolines foams are waterproof. Nothing special really.

Looks cool, look up formula offroad and rc formula offroad. Those things are like boats, they can keep on going in water till they hit land or slow down by mistake and sink.

jettrooper nailed it, proline foams are waterproof. Genius invention.

veggies this was shot in calgary. It rained here for about a week, making it a perfect time to play
