    Just wondering if you can run your nitro in the rain? Most posts I read don't, but I was just curious as to why not?

    Sure you can but before you do I would take the time to water proof your electronics servos and RX box.

    There you go, spray some WD40 on electrical helps to water proof.

    Good question WD40 does several things 1-it inhibits rust, 2- it also repells water it has a combination of oils and solvents in it.

    Gotta take the good with the bad , I dont no about you but my stuff gets very dirty after a long day of running them reguardless if I use WD or a dry silicone lube, still requires a good cleaning. Keep in mind when using WD or any lube it doesnt take much to get the job done.

    stuff always gets dirty. live with it! I think its fun cleaning everything out. It also gives you a chance to check everything out to see if anythings broken.
