Default surface drive hammer

I have a hammer and just installed a 17 turn motor and a traxxas waterproof xl-5. my wonder if a surface drive would be a good wave jumper? and do bigger props make the motor hotter?

Yeah, I wondered about that for a while, I even tried talking some people into trying it. One guy even bought a boat hull, but them changed his mind.

I finally stopped trying to talk other people into trying it, and decided to make my own, and I'm glad I did.

My Hammer (which now has a $30 chinese brushless motor in it) now hits over 40mph on a single 7.4 volt Lipo pack...and that's with no cooling on the ESC...heck the motor doesn't even get noticeably warm.

Read through this thread, it shows more detail on the build:
