With one cabin window open and the smoke stack I have good cooling.
I don't know a whole lot about this stuff and I always see water cooling advertised so I thought because this boat will be water tight, I would need water cooling.

if its this one
XL-2.5™ Waterproof FWD/REV ESC

• 10-turn motor limit for 380 size motors
• Input Voltage: 9.6 volts
• Three drive profiles
• Forward / Reverse / Brake
• EZ-Set® push-button setup
• Thermal shutdown protection

Nooooooo...........

the only Traxxas ones suitable for your hull are the EVX-2 marine or std and personally I think it might not be enough.

I'm just starting the final sand down and then up through the grits.
How thick is acceptable for the hull?
How much do you think this hull should weigh?
