you can drive it in the snow. it snowed a few days ago in New York and i took my mgt out. it has a recever case already but, you can wrap them in a rubber ballone it works just as good.

i have never had problems running my maxx in the snow... i just wiped all the snow away from the receiver box when i was doen then sat it in the sink upside down... as for the rusty just balloon the receiver and then when ur done sit it upside down in the sink as well so it can drip dry....

If you don't have access to a balloon then use a small sandwich bag.

For the T-maxx just balloon the reciever, your servos should be fine as long as you don't submerse the truck in water - snow won't melt fast enough to get into your servos. As for the electric - balloon the reciever and do everything you can to keep the ESC dry - the ESC is more apt to give you problems than the reciever.

Does anyones servos slowly seize up like mollasas in the cold (30 or lower degrees). I dont mean that they glitch, but that they get slower and harder.

Are you sure it wasn't due to the cold effecting the voltage of the batteries?

I've driven my cars in below freezing weather many times without any problems. To seal my esc from water I used clear silicone around the case seam.

Its the servos. I turn the horns by hand and they are sticky and slow, but once warmed up, its fine.
