    Hot Speed Control

    MY stock speed control is getting pretty hot. The motors eash with a heatsink and fan only get warm. How hot can the speed control get before it is harmful? Should i just add a fan to it?

    Gear down, I've running 17t pinions instead of the stock 19t pinions.

    Adding a fan would probably be a big help. Now that winter is coming having cold air across the heatsink would probably work well. Gearing down is a good option too. Most people gain so much torque they forget about top speed.
