    difference between the 2 ESC and Motor

    I've notice that my ESC is different than the other. mine seems to have the caps exposed and dont have a cooling line loop over the top of ESC. also my motor wire goes directly to the ESC, while some motors i see it with a connector more towards the motor.
    My question is, is one better than the other?

    heres mine:

    and someones pic from here to see the difference

    this is even better good news to me.
    by tomorrow my aluminum cooling jacket and a pair of trim tabs will be here. i'm going to do the individual cooling (ESC/MOTOR) and i'm still trying to decide weither to get the dual water pick-up rudder or transom water pick-up.

    The dual pick up rudder is faster and easier to install but the transom water pick up actually will provide more water flow.

    And good deal on the boat....

    I too have that model. Just out of curiosity - what were all the changes were made for the v2 boat?

    What about those exposed capacitor tops? Surely bad if they get wet? Worth covering or a bad idea?

    I spray my ESC's with liquid tape or plasti dip to help water proof them. Apart from spraying with a waterproofer of some sort I would recommend not covering the capacitors with anything that might hinder heat disapation.
