    VXL 6s in cars?

    I was thinking about the Spartan for no particular reason and realized that I didn't know anything about it. I found out about the VXL 6S and since it can handle 6s power I was thinking. Would it work in one of the 6s capable cars like the summit and e revo? It has that huge motor too. Is there some reason it would only work in the boats?

    The ESC is water cooled so it is not really a good fit for a car or truck plus I dont think it has reverse.

    Only problem would be heating I think. The Spartan esc overheats on 6s with water cooling, imagine if it didn't have the water cooling

    Boat esc's can be used in cars without water as long as they don't overheat. Reminds me of when I had a water cooled 2-stroke on a 1/5 truck of mine!

    You could make a small scale water-cooling system if you really wanted to?

    Really wouldn't even need to make one. Just buy a CPU water cooling unit for a computer and modify it. It has a fan radiator and the works.
