Proboat Sonicwake Cooling Upgrade – Step By Step Guide

The Proboat Sonicwake is an excellent rc boat choice, although the internal esc and brushless motor can start to run quite hot after prolonged periods of time which is undesirable if you want to get the longest lifespan out of your internal components. We have designed several components to help take the heat away from internal components. Our Proboat Sonicwake dual outlet rudder kit is exceptional at taking the heat away from the esc and motor and dispersing the heat into the water. Using an Rc Boat Bitz rudder kit is a great way to preserve the life of your boats internal components.

mark hole and use a small drill for the pilot hole, I’m using 2mm here

note there is webbing inside the transom for strength which limits where you can drill

i was initially going to just drill a tight hole for the tubing but ours doesnt match the proboat one exactly so decided to start over with all new tubing. At this stage I figured I might as well do it properly and install some our perfect seal hose covers, plus the extra cnc boat bitz parts look cool!

This meant drilling out both holes slightly larger. 1/4″ drill bit is ideal, but if your metric set doesnt have that size use a 6.5mm bit with some silicone

next mark your hole for the extra outlet. doesnt matter where you fit this but if youre going to put it next to the original one make sure its straight!

then after looking at the 2 together, ours being aluminium and the stock one being a rubber grommet, next step is to head back to the RCBB stockroom for another aluminium outlet!
