XL5 is a speed control, not a receiver.

XL-5 is actually the ESC. Its brushed, and the cheapest models they sell come with it.

Brushed 1/16th revo is like $200 too.

I've submerged an RC running traxas electronics out of a XL-5 in salt water before (last winter drove it into a pothole) and they still work (battery didn't survive though)

The Best [link=http://rc-car-truck.com/waterproof-rc-car]waterproof RC Car[/link] is the Summit or an E-Maxx. They cost quite a bit, but when you consider what you get and that it's waterproof out of the box, it's really worth it. Just watch the videos on it.

you can get a evader ext for $110 and get the traxxas electronics. there are also other brands that offer waterproof esc's servos and recivers for next to nothing.
