Anytime you run your stuff in a gritty type of soil, sand and mud etc, you need to keep an eye on all of the little nooks and crannys on your truck. Clean immediately after mud bogging. Bearings especially ! Definately waterproof your electronics with plasti-dip or balloons. And yes those tires in mud would be awesome, but take the time to cut the small tread lugs out of the tire using a razor blade. This will open up the tire and allow more of a paddle effect and make them clean better.

GITT'R MUDDY and post some pics if you can. You know what else would be sweet for the revo in the mud, I seen this skidplate on a website for the revo, its at www.pph-racing.com Check it out, they are pretty cheap

ive been known to kick a little mud! its fun, but man the clean up is painful!!
heres a pic during a refill.

and heres the end of the day!! the mud made my tires out of balance and heavy. they blew up at the same time!

all in all the mud is more trouble than its worth!

I never knew that tires could ballon and explode because of the mud. Hmmmm, are those stock tires. For some reason I dont think you could get some Joes to do that, or some other bigger beefier tire.
