« on: October 08, 2013, 10:07:32 PM »
Fried my esc, im looking around for something waterproof, but i wanna hear what you guys have to say, i need something cheap, good for a velineon motor, and waterproof, or atleast fairly water resistant, i have an outerwears shroud, but i still want something that can have a couple drops of water on it. Thanks!

I know that works well in a 2wd, but would it get hot in a 4 wheel?

"Fluid Film" is what kris is talking about. As for sv3, glue a fan on it. I ran one in my sc10 4x4 was awesome. Then I switched to sensord. My sv2 never ever got very hot. Underrated esc if you ask me

Yeah. Just grab a fan while you get it. I used CA to glue it to heat sink and it only ever got warm.
