    I am using that Reedy motor and esc combo in my truck. It is probably my gearing, but I'm finding I'm having a few heat dramas.

    So I took it out for a 10 min run today with the temp gun at close hand.

    After that run with the 16/90 gearing the esc was 100 F and the motor was 137 F.

    Should I try a 14T pinion?

    Cool body mate. Personally, I don't like the red arms or bumpers. If they were black I reckon this would be one of the better looks MERVs getting around.
