You may have problems with a motor mount since the face of the notor appears to me recessed a bit.

Boaters are nice people.
Hi EJ,

I just recieved this jacket for my 3674 motor:
The jacket is too long for your motor, but there are 50 mm versions too, which are more effective; probably not really necessary for a fourpole motor, but it keeps my motor really cool.

As your motor is designed for an EDF, it has cooling slots to allow air through the armature, blocking them with a motormount is not a good idea, specially, as the cooling capability of the mount will be neglectable, due to the design of the front endbell.

A motormount which can be drilled to allow airflow through the armature would be a better solution.

I'm not sure you'll like what this motor can do to your SV27 though, the torque is huge, compared to an IC motor...

Regards, Jan.

Appologies for going OT, but Shamrin, if I may ask, how does your Arowana perform with this relative short motor?

The reason I ask is that I run mine with this motor, after the stock 60 mm motor became increasingly hot:
Which is considerably longer/more torquey...

Hi Mr Jan,

Im just new to this hobby & for your info, im just owned the Arowana few months ago, after reading all the infos from you & your pals here (about the Arowana 31.5' Mono Hull)..thanks a lots..

Anyway, regarding the EDF motor, Yes surely the size is short BUT it gives me more fun playing after running my boat at full throthe (except on the turn..hehe) and about 5-7 minutes of playing..the motor is just is not as fast as your boat anyway..hehe..since im doing this for hobby & it is fun and enjoyable

About your motor there, im been waiting for long time already but it still on back order so i decided to take this EDF motor after seeing the video about it from Hobbyking on Apparition Ultimate Motor Upgrade..So Mr EJ if you want to see and know about this motor you can see the video there..the water cooling jacket is almost the same size with mine there sorry i can't provide you the pic of my motor since im away from home right now..hehe..

Anyway thanks for the advice about the motor Mr Jan, you re surely really helping.

Regards, Shamrin.

Hi EJ,

Not the same motor and not the same website, a longer can, but the same Kv, the higher Wattage is not an issue:
