I would say no just cause of the engine.
But if it were electric yes.
You just have to plastic dip the servos.
But if you find a way to water proof the engine Please tell me without it burning up.

i guess he is talking about the air filter
you really need to tighten it at the engine and it should never touch the water... then it would be 99% waterproof
you also need to put the muffler in a different position if you really want to drive through deep water

edit:
just to remind you water isnt all that good for your car

I heard covering the insides with epoxy does the trick.
