I'm guessing the car will stop working with water everywhere before having a snorkel is an issue. It's a slightly higher road cruiser after all. So don't rely on it. But for the looks, sure go for it and make sure you post pictures!

My thinking as well. I would be careful trying to dive with these cars.. Even just on the road, there have been issues with water ingress, firewall harness not sealing properly, water leaking on computer modules hard to diagnose. I wouldn't go deeper than 1ft water, even the transmission has a breather pipe that may suck water in.

If it's just for mud play, should be fine
