Outrunners like high timing. ...... set at 25-30 degrees.....whatever highest is available.

Try your ESC with the stock motor and visa way to look for failed electronics.

Be sure to set throttle range on the new ESC to match the TX.

As far as inrunners go, you trade speed for self-righting. The smaller rotating mass of the centrally-mounted armature is not enough to roll the boat back over. Trouble with THAT is that a faster boat wants to flip more easily.

I stuck a very powerful 2850 3580KV inrunner in my XL once. After a day of making rescues I went back to outrunners.

The QX QF2827 EDF motor is a good swap-in. The actual dimensions are 2847, similar to the stock one. I have the 3500KV installed after running a 3200KV for awhile. You'll need a 3mm to 4mm coupler for the larger motor shaft and at least a 60A ESC.
