    ESC temp

    Hey guys, Iíve noticed that the esc gets pretty hot after a session of driving. Has anyone tried one of those GRC radiator cooling fans you see on fleaBay?

    What temp was it at? Generally speaking for crawlers, esc and motor temps shouldn’t really be an issue. If the esc is running hot it could be a sign of issues elsewhere.

    I’ll check with a temp gun, but it’s definitely hot to the touch and you can’t really keep your finger on it very long.

    Depends on a lot of factors : outside temp, driving style, 2s or3s...
    Mine also gets pretty hot sometimes, up to 80 Celsius should be just fine. Too hot to touch for long but not burning hot...
