    is this possible vxl6s marine esc-18000kv motor

    I just say video of an erevo powered by a vxl-6s marine esc and 1800kv motor, it seems to run really good, but my question is this setup appropiate, I thought the marine esc needed to be watercooled, any thoughts?

    If it needs to be water cooled you would need some kind of water tank or radiator. I asked the same question and received the same answer. Anyway I think a 1800kv motor wouldnt have enough torque for a 10lb plus truck.

    Ive never seen it so maybe ask the dude who posted it his temps, gearing, batteries, etc.

    any 1800kv motor should torpedo any e-revo. shouldnt it. the bigger the kv, the less you got. i utubed it.

    And RPM of the motor can actually hurt you with too much heat if its too high. Optimal is about 35-40,000 RPM

    2200*22.2=49,000 RPM
    1800*22.2=40,000 RPM

    Hmm 13ga wire on the esc and plastic for a heatsink. That's a downgrade from the Mamba's 10ga wire, but it's waterproof. The motor (1420 1800kv) is a double length version of the castle 1410 3800kv with stainless steal hardware and bearings.

    As long as the esc gets properly cooled, whats the problem?
    Chances are the case and heatsink are modded to allow more surface area.
    An enclosed water cooled esc would not last long in a land based truck otherwise.

    ok so i watched that video but i wanted to see what the inside looked like so i literally googled it and this is what i found, sorry if this is against the rules, im not trying to promote anyone it just has pictures which now arent on this thread. http://www.rctech.net/forum/r-c-item...proof-rtr.html
    look pretty cool but the motor looks really thin and idk how well that would work in the long haul

    and i cant edit my post but.. i messaged him n ebay becasue i found the revo there and here is what he said in response to temps and power compared to a mmm

    "On 4s the ESC is less than 100deg. I havent had anything read over 98. On 6s its around 145deg. This ESC is a MMM that's been watercooled and designed for boats, but you can connect it to castle link and adjust a few things, but not as a MMM. I did run a MMM in it and I will say that it is more powerful than the system I have in it, but honestly this has plenty of power as it is. Standing backflips on 4s isn't bad :P"
