    So I've seen some people that have something like a canvas bag over their chassis of their trucks. I have a slash 2wd with the lcg chassis and now that the yards drying out, I'm having to dump out dirt and rocks after runs. I realize it won't stop all dirt, but it'd be nice to minimize the amount I feel. Has anyone come across this kind of thing or maybe even have one? ​

    Id like to use this a lot but the lcg chassis is a different shape, I don't think this would work.
    It's a shame because I really like the idea of it.

    I will be trying the Dusty Motors shroud. Having one specifically made for the lcg chassis is pretty much all I was looking for. I just hope it holds up well. The zipper is also a nice touch.

    With the shroud, just be sure to monitor the temperature of your electronics, especially if you start changing your gearing or running larger batteries. The shroud will keep dirt out, but your temps could rise as a result of trapping in heat.
