Designed specifically for the Lacroix Stormcore, Xenith and Unity ESC's, this enclosure provides unique and innovative ESC cooling and mounting solutions.
Firstly, we don't like mounting ESC's to the lids of enclosures, this makes it difficult to work on your electronics so we decided to flip convention on its head and we bolt the ESC to the heatsink base. The fins on the CNC'd precision baseplate have great airflow which keeps your motor controller cool and operating at its optimum temperatures. Should you ever need to get into your enclosure, all you have to do is simply remove the carbon fibre lid and all of your electronics are easily accessible.
This Version 2 enclosure uses a new adjustable mounting solution that allows you to adjust the position of your enclosure up and down by 15mm, then this is secured with 4 x M5 truck bolts (provided). The rest of the enclosure is bolted to this mount plate with 4 x bolts - meaning if you ever need to get to your truck bolts, you don't need to open the enclosure!
We've lightened the wall sections considerably to reduce total weight. We Think this is the lightest ESC enclosure on the market at just 471g
We now provide two top plate options, Stormcore and Xenith/Unity.
Includes 1 x enclosure complete
4 x M3 ESC bolts for securing the ESC to the base
4 x M5 x 35mm truck baseplate bolts
Installing the Apex ESC is fairly straight forward but has lots of little details to follow. In this guide we are going to be installing the BKB Xenith into the enclosure.
Firstly disassemble the ESC enclosure carefully, noting the various bolts that secure it all together
Next prepare your ESC, we are going to snip off the MR60's as we will not be using thesefrom underneath, bolt the ESC to the heatsink baseplate witht he included small bolts and poke the phase wires through the outer holes.
Running the cables like this creates an incredible weather tight cable egress. Note the ESC securing bolts in this below image.Next its time to trim your phase wires down. The aim of this is to get the whole of the bullet connection underneath the baseplatesolder on your female bullets
solder up your power cable
before connecting it up and tucking it out the way.Now is a good time to attach the carbon baseplate to the deck. If you are using spring trucks you will see there is an area cut out the carbon plate for the adjusters. if you are using a deck with a wide tail then you may have to drill through the deck for the two outer lower bolts (use the carbon plate you bolted down as a template). connect your motors and heat shrink the bullet connectors
The motor sensor wires go through these holes
Now sandwich it all down to the carbon plate, make sure none of the bullets are trapped and can move slightly. Bolt the ESC enclosure to the carbon base plate. add your switch to the lid and ESC and bolt the lid down.
