I tried the same set-up and it melted the insulation on the 20guage wires and raosted the esc. TWICE.

I ran a vr3 with the stock setup and it got smoking hot, think it burned out the esc. Moved on to a brushless setup and it is much better. Will try the vr3 again in something different.....so far not impressed with the motor.

I picked up a VR3 for a relatives boat, about 6 runs later a brush broke/disintegrated. Looking at brushless now.
