    I am thinking about plastidipping the traxxas link receiver in my summit and was wondering if anybody has already done it and what they did.

    Thanks for the help!

    The Traxxas receiver box seals great if it is put together right make sure the o-ring seal is in good shape and seated properly then the area where the wires come out is sealed good with a grease like factory or silicone sealant of some type.

    I use vasoline - well I do now - before I didnt and my reciever box got wet like you said.

    I use a Traxxas Tqi in my Wringo and I used liquid tape to WP the receiver. I put a piece of packing tape over the LED's so I could see them afterward. Then I put 4 wire extension leads in the receiver and proceeded to liquid tape teh whole thing. It's worked well so far.
    NOTE: When I plugged the servos and esc into the extensions I also coated them in liquid tape to keep water out of the connectors.
