Every ESC I run comes off hot, so nothing new there. I liked the feel of the VFS1 when it wasnt busy overheating, so I would like to try the new one and see how it is. Especially if the Masami version is in CF print, that just makes it even cooler

Why don't you just mount a small fan above the speed control to help keep the temps down? I know it would involve some interesting dremel work, bur who doesn't like to use a dremel?

Dremel work is no problem for me, but it really wouldnt take any, just make a small lexan mount to hold the fan over the ESC.

the Q2 or MC800 heatsink kits fit the VFS-1's without any mods...
the FUT kit would work..it's black and still give you that stealth look...

But the whole point is to use a dremel. Here's a question, have you seen/ used the associated heat sink with the fan on it? Wondering what a good motor heatsink would be.

Yes you do. I sanded and sealed everything carbon fiber. I've seen what happens when cf delaminates and it sucks. ( the splinters hurt real bad too)
