I am getting ready to order the seaking 180 esc and was wondering how to mount it to my tray in my spartan and also if i need to order any connectors i am using two 3s lipos
Check this thread out, http://traxxas.com/forums/showthread...ges-on-the-way.
Should be the second or third picture.
Just smoked a brand new seaking 180 on the second run. Not happy.
There seems to be no luck with this boat..... I would try a Castle Hydra system over the others now with a Castle motor...
Do you know what happened? How was your rc temps?

The other just died after spurting the boat ahead about 4 feet on the very first run.
I sent both back for warranty consideration, and both were replaced without question.
The 180 ESC's are not necessarily any better quality than the stock ESC, they are just rated for higher amps, which is advantageous.
Also, anytime they manufacture mass quantities of electrical components (or any other item for that matter) there will be a certain percentage of failures.
There are several Spartan owners running 180 ESC's with overall great success and reliability.
I run them in three boats, and have a significant number of trouble free runs overall.
Idk..maybe it got wet....

So anyone else running a SK 180? I have a heavy feeling that my new ESC solderjob is about to die and this time it won't go back for repair/replacement...
i run the sk180 for a short while and have ( knock on wood ) no problems.
