I like it. PVC coupler right? If it does come out to be the right id you could even add a carbon fiber wrap if you wanted to. I was about to do that on an old KB before finding them premade at OSE. (that was a waste of money, the motor sucked)

Yea.................KB's are crap, big amp hogs and run hotter than heck.

So you likey the cooler......PVC........ Gotta find some O rings at the hardware store that will fit tightly around the motor. Found out from Dasboata on OSE that the 57mm is with the fins, so should work!

Motor delivery notice we hope? On the good side fiberglass won't rot. At least not for a day or two.

Motor should be tomorrow in the mail...............wife may be home to sign for it.

This big red hull sure makes a nice paperweight

Be sure to put that Swordfish some place that it won't get wet. Learn from my mistake on that one.

Setup is pretty easy with the USB link. I set mine to auto on timing and cell count standard startup, soft cutoff and disable the braking. PWM rate I left at the default 8 khz for the Neu. Alex had to go to the highest setting to get his Screamers outrunner to work right.

Eureka! Got some goodies...........finally!!!

The motor came too............but guess what............no one here to "sign" for it............. Gotta wait til monday to pick it up........

Got my Swordfish 240HV......this sucker is BIG

Two Traxxas high torque servos

5.5 and 8mm bullets

Some 10 gauge wire

x460 for Hydro and an x450 for Vader
