You might want to go for the Mamba X monster (if thats not what you have) its rated for heavier rigs

not in stock unfortunately

I dont think you have an air flow issue, its that your demanding too many amps from the ESC. 6X6 + big 6"(?) tires means a very big load is being put on the ESC.
Thanks thats the esc I'm replacing

Dude, your truck is a beast if the Mamba x was the weak link. I'd send it in to Castle, but maybe leave out either the 6s or the 2200 puller part. Next go around maybe try limiting yourself to 4s, or upping to a mamba monster x if you insist on 6s ludicrous levels of power.

ESPECIALLY since I saw you mentioned that you had this:

"ripple killer cap pack"

I'm assuming this is some sort of capacitor soldered inline somewhere?

Lots of potential failure points.....
