    No kidding, hence the word "waterproof" on the ESC of newer versions .

    It's just a known fact, don't drive your stuff in salt water, unless you would like a rusty ornament.

    As per the owners manual:

    Do NOT allow your model to come in contact with salt water (ocean water),
    brackish water (between fresh water and ocean water), or other contaminated
    water. Salt water is highly conductive and highly corrosive. Use caution if you
    plan to run your model on or near a beach.

    I prefer the cold. I did 2 tours up in Alaska and loved every minute of it, but got very tired of being on a boat out there. It just gets miserable when you're out there in that crap for a couple months at a time. Visited Victoria several times. Beautiful place I must say. If it wasn't for my wife and kids, I'd got right back to Alaska to live permanatly. I start sweating in the high 60's and am comfortable in jeans and and a light jacket down into the 30's. -15 is a little cold I will admit though.

    Maybe they should change Waterproof, to say, Non Submersible...

    Yes you can hose it off, drive thru puddles etc., but NO you can't drive it underwater in the ocean !

    Clearwater is a beautiful beach, though parking can be a hassle. Ft. Walton area gorgeous too.
