    Ian that Jacket is way too small for the Castle Motor. The stock motor is only 36mm in diameter, the 1520 is almost 40mm. Sell that Castle and buy 2 Tacon 1700KV Motors!!
    Its a fast but very efficient cool running 4 pole motor. Best part is it's only $54

    Then get this cooling jacket from Kintec Racing. It covers 60mm of the can the can.

    The Castle 15xx series motors (green can) are 42mm OD with the fins.

    The jackets are a different design than those designed to fit the smooth can motors.

    I think you can use a 1515 jacket on the 1520, it is just shorter and won't cover as much of the motor.

    ^^^ I was asking myself the same Q when I saw the post. Why would one sell a CC for the Tacon?

    If one can afford the CC motor by all means that would be the better option IMO. Esp. where Customer Support/'Peace of Mind' is concerned.

    that is a great idea and they will work great as these motors are so much better and really don't need a whole heep of cooling to get the job done
