Default How deep of water before I have cart failure?

My ranch is rather wet right now.
I have atv's, but prefer to cruise around on the cart.
6" lift and 22" tires.

Does flooding the connections to the motor cause failure?
I know I don't own a submarine, but not sure how far I can push it.

Anything up to the motor is too much. They are not sealed and if water gets inside, it will do a number on the brush holders and you will soon have motor failure.

Your powerful insight is eclipsed only by your command of sentence structure.

Many thanks!

A good indicator would be a buzzing sound followed by a sudden lack of motion!!!Us Gasser-Guys use the belt-slippage as a guide!!
