Axial SCX10 in shallow water, mud, dirt etc
Testing my waterproofed axles, servo and brushed 35T power system. Some clips are 2x speed. Using stock gears, no OD/UD:

Originally wanted to get 1.9 tires, closed cell foams and beadlock wheels so these could be disassembled and dried after running but some things were out of stock. Got cheaper wheel sets for mud and water instead. These were sold under brand name Absima as Steelhammer 108 mm and on photos they look identical to Banggood Hobby Master 108 mm crawler wheels. Plastic rims seemed a bit small for proper concentric alignment and the hex hub seems to have a lot less material than Axial stock wheels. So far no breakage even with one wheel stuck and slipper clutch slipping (spring tension as per manual). Covered the vent hole with tape and seems that no water got in. Did not want to risk with getting water into Axial wheels, happened once before and it took a long time to get it out.

Re: Axial SCX10 in shallow water, mud, dirt etc
Thank you, those two characters were about 5 eur each at discount price and readily available at a toy store close by.

Another video. The idea was to pick a starting point at the edge of a clearing and try to go as far as possible across while staying close to the vehicle, using as little "Hand of God" as possible and not scouting possible lines too far ahead. It was pretty fun and challenging. Some parts are at 2x speed.
