I hope you liked the pictures, i wish the cliff climber didn't have open ended axles that let mud in and small motors that get bogged down in mud, but i guess i will just have to live with them.

Thanks, yeah crawling through mud is very fun, the clean up isn't as fun though but i just spray everything off with a hose then i put it in clean water above the axles and drive it around until mud stops coming out.
The waterproofing is actually fairly easy just don't rush it, here are a few youtube video's on how to waterproof.(All from Squirrelod)

Sweet little Cliffy you got there. Seems right at home track width and wheelbase with that HPI D90. Great idea on the chassis btw Erector set...who woulda thought! How's it holding up?
