vxl3s watercooling

I am planning on running a twin vxl setup in my traxxas villain ex and I want to know what the best way to watercool the esc would be. I plan on having the esc's in the stock radio box, one on either side and i already have cooling coils for the motors. I plan on running 3s 5000mah 25-35c lipos, will this cause a lot of heat if I didnt have the esc's cooled?

It has been a while since I've had a VXL speedo and I can't remember if the heatsink is removeable or not. If you can I would cast a watercooled heat sink to the top of the FET's with a bit of thermal transfer epoxy and closely monitor the temps for your first few runs.
