    is it ok to run in wet weather? not pouring down raining!

    It's the day after I got my truck running and want to try it out but when I wake up this morning the ground was at wet. Is it ok to run in this condition?

    I am not sure what experiences others have, but i have been running in wet grass and nothing happened. Car will be dirty as hell after that (especially when you will drive in wet grass and some sand). Just make sure no water gets in receiver box and you will be safe.

    are you going to be running it on pavement or dirt if in dirt wrap your battery case in a plastic baggy. if on pavement make sure theres no water in the gutters.

    Check your air filter in wet conditions Often Nothing worse than a engine with water in it.

    RE: is it ok to run in wet weather? not pouring down raining!

    i love to run my savage in mud.
    i've had it in some pretty serious mud, over the tires, but i have my battery box and reciver in a condom.
    clean up is a *****.
    but i play with my tornado XP on wet pavement all the time its fun.
    my girl said she\'d cut me off if i didn\'t quit spending so much time with my savage, so i bought a hooker

    I have a Himoto Syclone pro and I use it when it's wet out all the time. It does get pretty dirty, but it is a blast to fish tail it and whip around doing donuts.

    Oh yeah I forgot to add, the first day I had my syclone I did run it into a puddle that pretty much covered the whole buggy, even got water into the tail pipe. It stalled out but after I poured the water out first pull it started right up and when I was done playing I just took it apart and dryed everything out completely.
