If you soak the motors in WD-40 first will they still rust if exposed to
water?

There are a lot of warship modeling clubs around where the players/hobbyists
shoot at each others' warships (several feet long scale models) with bb guns
in the ship's turrets. They make their hulls intentionally thin so enough
rounds
in the right places will sink a ship, I guess the game is no fun if there's
not
boats sinking. I've looked at the websites and it seems that water damage
to the electronics inside is no big deal, they just patch the hulls, get out
a hair dryer to dry the inside, and send them back out into battle.

As long as it's fresh water  it will cause no problems . It will just
slow down the motors down a little bit. Run a motor under is a good my
to clean out the carbon from the brushes.
