I do know theres a issue with the motor mount being to small, The BLX has small mounting holes. The pattern as Is, won't fit some of the more popular 5th scale motors like TP power, Castle and leopard. Guy That owns my hobby shop Fabricated one and he's about to test It. He put a Hobbywing Max 5, and a TP power 1440kv He told me If the truck and the mount handle the power well He'll Fab a bunch and sell them In the shop.

the tp motors fit on stock mounts. you don't need that unless you are trying to go fast on the road... the stock 6s trucks go plenty fast off jumps and into the ground.

He's trying to go Fast, He showed It to me In the shop The circumference of the top plate on the BLX was smaller than the TP-56550 1440KV the mount holes didn't line up.

I have a Kraton 8s, but haven't ran It yet, as I have to cut the ESC battery connectors and make them EC5 to match all my batteries. Is the V3 mount the one It comes with? I haven't looked yet. The guy that owns the shop Is pretty knowledgeable. or maybe the Tp cans are just different sizes.

The IC5 has a "Smart" center pin that blocks insertion to a receiving EC5 in one direction.(y)

Yeah they are compatible, iirc the EC5 battery will connect to an IC5 esc but you can't connect an IC5 battery to an EC5 esc.

You mean like this??
