    My Friend's Foaming At The Mouth

    My friend & I went out, and ran our boats again. The water temp was 80 degrees. I ran all day using 6s 8,000mah & 10,000mah batteries. I lubed up every other run, and all my temps were no more than 112 degrees. My friend is foaming at the mouth for me to mod his boat up like mine. He being my friend and all, I will. But in the mean time, I've been giving him a hard time by telling him that he's not big and bad enough to have a boat like mine. (lol)
    Anyway, we're having a ball running them together.

    The brass tube that the flex shaft fits into (from the factory) is connected to the bracket (I don't know the right name) that holds the propeller. That way, I don't loose all my grease at the rubber grommet due to the flex shafts' screwing effect.

    The computer chip looking thing is a Castle Creations CapPack. The cooling lines are running into little things that cool the capacitors on the cap pack and the capacitors on the ESC. I remember his thread on that when he first did it.

    Your a good boy F-R, and you're absolutely right...and you have a good memory too. I was trying to answer these guys questions without bringing up an old post. I don't think the Big Boys like it when people do that, and I didn't want to get yelled at with Red writting.

    I did several things:
    1) Shortened ESU wires to 2 1/2 inches
    2) Shortened Battery wires to 2 1/4 inches
    3) Installed the OSE aluminum cooling jacket for the motor & the OSE dual port rudder
    4) installed the Castle CC Cap Pack
    5) Made & installed water cooled heat sinks for the Castle CC Cap Pack & the Castle ESC

    With that, I haven't had any trouble & have been able to play as I want. I will say though, that I don't run in salt water or high wind conditions.

    I used brass for my heat sinks & I posted step by step pictures on how to make them. I posted pictures on everything I did to my Spartan.When you get a chance, you should do a search on me ReglarDude & check-em out.
