Any brushed motor is essentially waterproof. Some people actually break-in motors running them submerged. If you do run in mud, just make sure to clean the motors after each run as leaving dirt & debris in there will kill one.

The WK is faster than the RS10-XT, but you'll need more than just tires to make the WK a crawler. At a minimum, you'll also need a smaller pinion and front/rear diff lockers.

Cleaning your motors with motor cleaner is a good thing, especially if you're running them in mud.

You'd actually want a larger pinion for more speed out of the RS10-XT. I've not tried to make a "fast" RS10, but going with larger pinions and lower wind (lower turn) motors will make it quicker than stock.

I'm biased towards the RS10, so maybe others can chime in for that. We are offering the RS10-XT for $165.99 shipped on our website though.

So basically you're wanting a faster crawler that is good for going through mud and streams and you're not really into the dual motor rigs? Sounds to me like a scaler would be a better choice for you. My suggestion is to do more research and reading on here and narrow it down a little better. You can make a RS10 fast, but you'll probably end up spending more than you'd like right away. At the very least, you'd need to upgrade the motors to something with lower turns and possibly mod the gearbox for 540 motors for more motor options.

I'm not entirely familiar with the crawler king, but I would imagine it's similar to the wheely king. Definitely do your research and read about several rigs before pulling the trigger and buying one. I wish I had done the same when I first got into the hobby, but I didn't and it's been a learning experience. What's your budget look like?
