    Question Motor and ESC temps

    Just curious what kind of temps some of you are getting.

    My plan was to do an immediate brushless switch but opted to run stock instead until replacement and upgrade parts become more available. What I am seeing is motor temps right at 150 degrees or slightly higher running stock.

    Just curious what temps some of you are getting and what combo are you running.

    I DROPPED A 4300kv in mine with stock gearing and it seems to get hot. i can't tell the temps until i get another temp gun, but too hot for me to hold my finger on it. so i give it a break for 5-10 minutes in the car with the a/c running, then finish out the pack.

    I only ripped around the garage for a few minutes and it felt pretty warm. I was looking at the body to see if we could cut out some of the fake vents to help with airflow. We would need to do it in a way create negative pressure under the body rather than positive though.

    TY for the replies. Guess it just seems to run on the warmer side.
