Post HobbyWing QuicRun WP-10BL60 review.

After my CC Sidewinder V2 died (lost a phase due to water, liquid electrical tape, or otherwise). I figured I'd give the HobbyWing QuicRun WP-10BL60.
Things I wanted & the good:
Waterproof
Non-sensored
Adjustable (best done with a program card)
4mm female bullets installed on motor leads
Inexpensive $48 shipped

The bad:
No battery connector just wires
Clunky switch design
No solder posts
3s Lipo max

My setup is a 6pole helli motor 2830 1000kv sized in a Tamiya CR-01 on a 3s 4000mAh pack with a 20t pinion.

Personal setup:
FWD/REV
0% drag brake
Voltage cut off 3.2v per cell
Start mode #5
100% brakes
75% reverse
Neutral Range 6% (narrow)
Timing - 0 deg
Temp protection - on

Impressions:
Smooth & it just works. The CC Sidewinder had a funny step between startup & running (start power high).
The fan is a little noisy, but after an hour I unplugged it & finished the trail with no fan to see how it holds, worked fine.
The Programming card (car ESC V2.0) was separate & cost $12 and works with a lot of HobbyWing ESCs.
The Neutral Range 9% (normal) is too wide & there was a huge pause from forward to reverse & vice versa 6% is much better...
The BEC is rated 6v 2amps, I only have one servo on the chassis (177oz) and it drives that fine.

For my water forging trail trucks I have had too many issues with sensored motors getting "funny" once wet & simple is better.
The 2830 motor has more torque than I could ask for.

I'll be testing it more soon but first impressions are promising.

Update:
Three solid days of use & still running strong.
Saw deep water action for the past couple of days... just silly fun.

Morton is small as can be seen by the specs from the page.

380s are 28 mm in diameter. 16/19 mm bolt hole spacing

540s are 36 mm in diameter. 25 mm bolt hole spacing

3racing makes a motor plate if you don't want to mess with adding a slot... # AX10-07 full kit or # AX10-16 for the plate only
I did grind a flat onto the shaft there is none.
The motor comes with 3.5mm bullets, so you may want to make an adapter from 4mm to 3.5mm
The 2830 series has a LOT of torque... I'm geared for about 5-7mph & it blew out one of my Traxxas slider drive shafts on a climb.

1000kv will likely be a little slow for a 2s I'm on 3s & it is just right or a touch slow.
11.1 volt x 1000kv = 11,100rpm
8.4 volt x 1321kv = 11,096rpm

This might be a decent 2s motor...
