Not really... On the output shaft is no rubber o-ring, which should be visible due to the slightly transparent plastic. I can directly see the ball bearing.
But the 3 junctions of the servo body have rubber rings.
I suggest that you put some grease on the output shaft to act as a shield and it will withstand watersplashes, but no submerging or high pressure washing.
I have 2 of these in my 2 and 4wd durango buggies running on 2s lipos without a glitch and they are outstanding for durability on the off-road. Torque is strong and speed is perfect for off road. They cost half to one third the price of big name brands at these specs and I wouldn't think twice before buying them again!
No, you can not use LiPo packs with these servos.
It says "Operating voltage: 4.8 - 6.0V", which means you can only use it with a 5-cell NiMH or a 2-cell LiFe pack. Both of those battery types have 6.6-6.7V at full charge, which is normal. With load the voltage gets lower, usally around 6V.
LiFe packs are more recommended than NiMH because of a more stable voltage and less charging time.
He referred to a "mbx6r nitro buggy"... where does it say it's electric and has a BEC?
It is just how I explained it... Please read the entire question before answering anything here, or the people asking just get confused and may damage their equipment.
Have a nice day.
I researched this a little bit and discovered you can use this servo IF you have a voltage regulator from the controller... The recommendation is for a 7.4v servo (to remain unregulated)... Hope this helps...
I am a serious racer and I have recently built a T4.2 and was looking for a cheap servo. Really wasnt expecting much for 20 bucks but was I wrong!!! This servo is amazing!!!! My first time out in pro class truck I got third thanks to this servo! Says .12 but acts like .09 hope this helped!

The servos work great for a while then they stop centering. Constantly adjusting servo center on transmitter.
