    Put 2 small holes 180 degrees apart in the center of the tire tread.
    Flip truck over and slowly apply throttle to spin the water out of the tires.
    Water will rot the foams.
    Oh and stand back that water does not taste or smell good at all.all that weight will heat the system up
    That is likely your heat issue.

    Never thought of that. Good idea. I'll do that. How about the sand in it?. Lol. I forgot to glue the holes shut.

    Yea. The tires are garbage anyway. Waiting for my axle extenders so I can run my beadlocks. Oh do you need a special esc for a sensored brushless? And what's a good high amp waterproof esc for a 3500 kv?

    Yes you need a esc that is sensored capable.
    The mmm2 is waterproof sensored and good up to 6s.
    Requires a sensored motor as well those are not waterproof but can be made so
    I am running a TEKIN rx8 that I waterproofed.

    No idea how to waterproof a motor. The buffering am low throttle is annoying. But that's probably because it's a radient system in it. And it runs hot.

    And next question is could you run a regular brushless with a sensored esc?

    The sensor board is the part that needs protection.
    Non sensored is fine doesn't need protection

    I kinda figured that. But could I use a non sensored motor with a sensored esc? Until I can afford a motor.

    Yes most sensored esc can run either.the TEKIN and castle can also run brushed motors if needed.
    If you run a sensored motor on a sensored esc without the sense cable connected it is running in un sensored mode.sensored gives you that buttery smooth low speed control without cogging

    Yea cogging is annoying. Ah. I'm new in the hobby. I bought a dominus 10sc v2. Happy with it so far. Just have to get longer coil shocks for the rear to eliminate the low hind end. Need around 120mm

    Is it throttle squat.as in hit the gas and it sags or just sags all the time?
    Stiffer springs or relocate the shock mounting point may be a solution before spending money on shocks.
    Just a thought

    From the factory it sits lower in the rear. And I've tried. I might try to make a shock extension.

    They only fit on the front right now. I have parts on the way. And the lights I wired myself.
