Default e-maxx dewalt

I put a 12v dewalt drill motor on my first gen e-maxx. I am running it with a traxxas xl5 esc. I have been running 4s lipo but the xl5 seems to be getting a little warm. what would be a good waterproof esc for this without busting the bank ?

jamie, it does not matter. What you do, is make a wiring harness for the dual motor and ESC and hook up those dual motor plugs on the ESC to the single ones on the motor, like so.

Love it. about 6 years ago I put a Dewalt motor on my Stampede, and the XL-5 seemed fine in that, but granted, it's a way smaller truck than the Emaxx. You're definitely right about it not being fast, but man that pede would wheelie and flip on its back with the slightest of throttle movement.
