    Default Updating my Voracity for new electronics

    Been working on my Voracity on and off this winter prepping it for a new motor and ESC. Today I drew up a template and cut out a rear motor support from 3mm carbon plate. In order to match the angle of the existing stuffing tube, I needed a slight bend past 90* in the stock motor mount, and a support at the rear of the motor can to make up the gap. I should be able to use the stock rear clamp with some longer M3 screws once this is epoxied in place. The new motor is a TP4060 with a full length water jacket.

    Finished up the rear mount and drilled new holes to re-use the rear clamp too. The new motor locks into place and is very solid. I made a new ESC mount for the ZTW 200A ESC. Shaved down the old mounting tabs and cut slots into the stock try to slip a velcro strap through. Cut out a carbon plate mount and epoxied it to the stock electronics tray. I was going to bolt in in place, but there was enough surface area for the epoxy, I don't think it was necessary. Mounted the ESC to the mount with ZipLock and a velcro strap over the top. I had to replace the cap head screws on the motor end bell with grub screws to clear the new mount. I also wrapped the water jacket in carbon fiber because it looks awesome.
