    my main question is, does anyone do this??? Me and 2 of my friends have been doing this for a couple weeks now, and its pretty fun. We're just using some piece of junk Radio Shack type trucks for now, but we're all thinking about going nitro, with a high lift and boat loads of torque. So anyone on these forums do this???

    naw, more like an inch to and inch and a half, but its a lot more like water. Theres a couple spots were theres a stream, the water only lik ean inch deep all the way around with stone under it, and thats were we usually go. I'll have to take some pic's of us out there, maybe some1'll get inspired. LOL

    then you have to take it all apart and clean it before it scratches anything then you are in truble plus for nitro the only way you can go msing is if you custome make it so your pipe ssticks out of mud and the filter becuse that all needs to breath freely and you will need to put ballons over your electronics like servos maybe some black tape over the sides of those and a ballon over the reciver and you ight want to keap the batteries clan yo i meann i am thinking about doing this with my new tmaxx i am getting

    i wouldnt be worrying about an esc, because of nitro, and since its a custom one, i'll make everything water/mud, watever, tight. I'm sure i could rig up somekind of snorkle system too, shouldnt be a problem. about the muffler, i'll probably end up making it rear exhaust, so it can piont striaght out of the back, where not much mud goes.

    alisar, u making a bogger??? if u r, maybe we could bounce idea's off of each other with this. my freind's say it would be too much money for them, so i'm the only one around here thats doing one, maybe. i dont think u'll find a snorkle system scaled down for an rc, but if u do tell us about it. thanks.
