Do the proline SC shocks mount up well? I imagine you would use the fronts:

I can't help with the Proline shocks but i can with the esc. for shocks i just picked up the Ofna SC10 shocks and plan to use the white springs in the front and stock with the orange in the rear. I do want to use a 3 or 4 hole piston in the front. I just do not get the rebound out of the front....

The ESC is too hot if you can not touch it for more than 2 seconds. It may work fine now, but it will burn up faster with that kind of heat. I would put the motor fan on the esc or gear down.
For the fan, some just use double sided tape on the lower inside edges and stick it on. I did that plus zipties on the outer part you would use if you put the fan on the motor. It kept my esc temps down to 100 on average.
