If not the heat sink gets close to the cap solder joints if it is slid over (to miss motor joints). I try not to get too much JB weld squishing onto the electrical connections.
The ESC is also best manually programmed with a 2S battery although I have done it many times on 6S. Most of mine came programmed correctly with 6 options but I did get a couple that were basic and only had 4 options. Different programming needed and no option to change timing or PWM.
Haven't tried the second ESC except in an 85A model. My 85A type had high failure rates.
The 3rd one I have bought 4 and only 1 still works, even though they had excellent cooling and never exceeded 100A load.
I would pass on it.
The fourth model I haven't tried.
