    What battery are you running? Iím using a 7400mah 4s. The manual says you need at least 5000mah

    I've been running 3s, 11t pinion, with big tires in 20ish degree weather and my motor has never even been hot to the touch. Did I get lucky, or do I just drive like an old man? Lol

    No sir, I don’t think it’s your driving. I live in south Louisiana, when I first ran it was in September and it was 90+. I don’t know if I could go out side if it was 20* lol
