HI folks - my Spartan smoked yesterday (picture attached from Google Photos).

I need to find a way to cool the caps in a VXL-6S or upgrade to a better ESC.
As my boat headed to shore still under good power, it was trailing smoke like a shot-up fighter plane.

Advice on future choice? Does Traxxas offer a VXL-6S replacement at a lower price if I try the cap cooling path?

Still I'm bummed.
