Hey guys, I got my Slash today and it's AMAZING! I never ran it with the XL-5, I scrapped the XL-5 and put my VXL system in it the moment it showed up and WOW is it fast!
I am running SPC 7-Cell Racing packs, and 19/86 gearing but I think it is getting a bit to hot. The battery stays cold, the ESC doesn't really get warm at all, but the motor peaked at almost 150 degrees Fahrenheit in 75 degree ambient temperatures.
What is the SAFE temps for the VXL motor and ESC? I'm sorry if this has been posted before, but I am probably searching for the wrong thing or something, so I just asked.
Is the 150 range okay for 20-30 minute runs? Like I said, the battery and the ESC don't seem to be all that hot. I plan to get a VXL Fan later on anyway though for the heck of it. So anyone know what the safe operating range is? Thanks.
