    Make sure it is not just the surface of the pool that is frozen LOL make sure there is at least 1 feet of pure solid ice under neath the surface before it hits water because other wise your rusty will be sinkinto the bottom and might get water damage depeding on how good you really did water proof it. The battery would be toast though. I wrap my 3s 5k lipo around in saran and tape it up to sel it and put the balance connector in the sack. Have you seeen the vid when the guys slash is floating in the pool upside down and it works perfectly fine? it makes me wonder exactly how water proof their water proof electronics are. Any way sounds fun slidin acroass the pool just get some good speed before LOL.
    Agree with slowenufs sig wheres the new 4 tec?

    I would also get some dielectric grease and put it on your battery connections too. You can get dielectric grease at any automotive store. It will keep those connectors safe, you could also use it on the receiver...
