I have heard of balloons on your receiver with a zip tie around the wires. Guess that works pretty good, I will have to try that on a servo as well

O
otherwise I was gonna say I got a traxxas esc that came out of a slash.
Post some pics of the stuff
when I dipped the servo's, I used some alittle Vaseline around the shaft, plus some on the mounting tabs, just easier to cut away when it dry's
and once you open that can, you only have a few days before it gets hard

Have you heard of anyone dipping their packs, I want to do mine for just my crawler.
It never even gets warm so I think I'll be safe doing it.
