I am pretty sure Castle still coats the boards with a wax like stuff to seal all the connections, at least my Max was like that.

castle creations, does coat the top of there esc's and such with a spray/wax that makes it water resistant, but not fully.

Castle Creations says " it can take running threw a few puddles every so often by accident" but are no fully waterproof



I went threw acouple of puddles with mine by accident when I lost control, no effect to anything, but at the end of the day running, I took my esc and motor out of my truck and aired it out
