SInce you didn't get an answer, I'll try. Two basic ways, balloons or dipping. Balloons are cheap, stuff your electronics into decent quality rubber balloons, seal the opening with a bit of greased cotton, zip tie it closed, and it'll keep most of the wet stuff out. Dipping is a bit more durable, but messier and more permanent. You can buy Plasti-dip in most hardware stores; it's intended for coating tool handles, etc. and can be brushed on fairly easily.

If you're just driving in wet grass, I wouldn't worry too much about it. The little bit of water you're likely to pick up will either evaporate on it's own fairly quickly or cook off from motor/ESC/battery heat. The only time you really have to be careful is if you get into a pool of water (which is a blast, by the way)
