I'm in the same predicament. I just preordered the Medusa 70mm motor yesterday . Now I'm thinking of just ordering the CC motor.

Patrick, is the motor going to be available separately? If so, when?

Patrick, i LOVE this motor it is amazing, runs a little hot when geared for 52mph.. but tis' to be expected

Will castle be making a Motor mount for a Cen truggy? to fit the giant 66t spur gear

Any idea of what the cost will be? I pre-ordered 70 and 80mm Medusas a while back, and that CC 1Y looks tempting. Will there be a lower KV option? If CC will make a 2.5D or some other wind that's under 2000 KV I'll be all over that.

Patrick mentioned that Castle will be sticking to the "Y" winds for effeciency.

Y winds are a little tiny bit more efficient than D winds.
but dont worry....you'll be happy when you see post #18

*edit* figured I'd save you the time

We are working right now on a 1518/1Y that has a Kv of about 1800. So we will end up with 2650, 2200, and 1800 Kv motors.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed for a 3100kv 1509/1Y I can jam in my CRT.5
....Patrick? Care to chime in here?...



Could be a market for them in the new 1/16 TrX trucks

Watercooling possible?

Watercooling possible? - 10.19.2008, 08:15 AM

I've seen a couple of watercooling jackets and things for motors but nothing where the liquid is directly in contact with the motor.

Is it possible for CC to machine the little slots in their motor into 1 massive spiral, put another thin layer of metal around the motor (to stop water from comming out) and insterting two little water nozzels into the spiral (like fuel nozzels) Water can then be pumped in one end of the motor, pass all the way round to the other end and come out.


Make a little heatskink with a fan, mount it somewhere in the truck to cool the water down.

What do you think?

get a standard cooling jacket for boats, i dont know the link but there is a company that makes a small radiator and fan combo. just be sure to use non-conductive cooling liquid or de-ionized water which doesnt conduct.

Every boat cooling jacket I have ever seen allows the water to come in contact with the outside case of the motor. I have not seen one that will work with a finned neu, but they do make them for smooth can neu motors.

Would you really want the added weight and current pull of a water cooling system? Resovoir, pump,radiator,fan and lines? Plus the risk of leakage all over your electronics, not to mention having to keep up with making sure you have clean water, no corrosion or orgranisms. You probably could use a cpu water block for the esc to replace the fan and heatsink. But if your pump were to fail, you probably wouldn't know until it was too late.

I think he means actually having the fins of the motor machined out into a spiral to form water channels. Then having a cover to mate that and seal it all up with water in/out puts attached to it. That would probably take some $$$ in machining the inside of the outer cover to match up.

What he probably meant was a motor designed like the one in the attached picture.

That is a cooling coil, not a cooling jacket. They work, but not as well as a jacket does.
