i went to my friends ranch offroading with my tamiya hummer :)....i was pleased to find that the truck didnt give me any problems whatsoever. i took it mudd bogging in the woods by a little stock pond....it started to rain while i was offroading but i didnt stop...and after all the rain and mudd my electronics survived

im planning on putting some LEDs on it for nighttime offroading in the summer and on holidays, maybe some school nights...like i was thinking if putting average lights for the regular headlights and super high powered fog lights maybe on a custom bull bar or on the top.

my hummer has had the following mods:
1. bearings
2. ESC
3. locked differentials

rest is stock

here are some pics of me having some fun
o and sorry for the excessively large pics :\

feel free to post some pics of time when you had fun offroading in your RC 4x4

Cool pics. Looks like good mud: Slippery and not sticking to the tires too much.

You might want to try a Manta Ray buggy body on the chassis under the Hummer body, for some extra protection, especially from dirt and stuff filling that tub chassis.

o yea i forgot to mention this...but i drilled small holes in the bottom of the chassis so that if water or sand starts to fill the tub chassis up..it'll drain out through the holes i drilled.....quite helpful
