    Brushless Systems

    I just got a slash roller and put my old XL-5 in it and was wondering what the best waterproof esc and motor combo is. I was thinking bout the SV3 because its cheaper then the Velenion but which is the best????

    I put my ESC in a mamba case with fan.
    The case does need some cutting.

    No fan is waterproof.
