DF are you using this esc? Interesting reading the specs. Notice motor limit and about thermal shutdown. Also about the 0 timing for reverse
Motor Limit: EVX-2 Marine has a 12-turn 550 modified motor limit whenInsulate the Wires: Always insulate exposed wiring with heat shrink tubingUse Neutrally Timed Motors: For reverse use, the motors must have 0°Motor Capacitors Required: Ceramic capacitors should be properly installedNo Schottky Diodes: External schottky diodes are not compatible with
the motor is properly geared. A water cooling kit (Traxxas part #1580) is
required for modified motor use in marine applications such as the Villain

Do not attempt to use a more powerful motor (fewer turns) than the above
mentioned motor limits or you could experience frequent thermal shutdown.

Mabuchi (closed end bell) motors are recommended. Using motors with
other than 0° timing will draw excess current in reverse, and can result in the

damage the ESC and void the 30-day warranty.
