I built this a few days ago so I could traverse the trails in the big park in my town and it performs wonderfully. It’s mostly hard packed dirt & stones (or muddy when it rains; which is like half the year), gravel, and asphalt. The single motor works fine for me since I’m a light dude but I can see myself adding another down the road for better traction and braking off road because if you pin the accelerator it’s likely to skid. Stops on a few dimes on streets though.
It’s going too get wet occasionally be it rain or mud so I took a few steps towards water resistance. I hot glued all the nooks and crannies on the focbox as well as wrapped it in a bag for extra protection until I get it in a box. The top mounted battery box should be good too with a silicone seal and 4 screws. I hot glued and ABS cemented the connectors tot he lid so no water should get in through there. Water ingress through the cables is a concern albeit not a large one since I don’t plan to go through hurricanes and my wires are fairly out of the way of splashes.
