    No problem.

    Recommend getting Common Sense LEDs (Amazon), they come pre-wired with the resistor and they will handle up to 12VDC.

    That will work. Just make sure the LEDs are rated for 6VDC, and make sure they all have a 100 ohm resistor in series.

    What ESC are you running?

    A typical Traxxas ESC sends 6VDC to the receiver, and should be able to power four LEDs easily. With that, I am assuming a stock setup with no modifications.

    Of course you'll need to do the normal waterproofing, I use dielectric grease on all of the sensor connections.
