Have you submerged your HPI?

Default Have you submerged your HPI?

So this past weekend, bubbles and I decided to bash hard. We both have savage flux XS. Bubbles runs a 2S and I run 3S. We both have different tires, and some HD components.

The weather wasn't great, and everything was wet. Didn't stop us. We bashed them good. So good, his esc needed to dry out and his diff started to slip. Mine held up, but I had a really big gap jump (not filmed) that caused some main diff damage. Details on that to come.

So have you been brave enough to submerge your HPI? Any pics, vids, horror or victory stories?

Here is pics of our weekend session... Full video here https://youtu.be/ZfC0mQjtICc PS: bubbles hits that yellow pole. The pole didnt move.

Not due to the water, but a very large impact jump. At least 10 feet vertical and a good 15-20 distance. Stripped two teeth off the idler and, me being stupid, stayed on the throttle. Spun the drive gear nearly bald hah! Got my work cut out for me.

Also this is a shameless cry for support. Wife is mad that I break Roxie, and she knows I started posting on YouTube. Please give a thumbs up if you dig our bashing, and I can convince wife that people want to watch me break Roxie. TIA.
