Default VXL motor wires

has anyone had the issue with the wire casing/rubber coatinggoing to the motor peeling back a little? mine have recently started doing it and im guessing sinceits an electrical wire, current is going thru it and water would short it out or ruin it. i accidentall ran it thru a puddle today and i always check the car after every run for issues, and i saw this.

I haven't had any issue like that. Just coat it with some liquid electrical tape.

Use it to waterproof your servo's as well, you can get it at any auto part or home improvment store..... It's good stuff
