I have the following set up:
Maxamps 11.1v 8000vh 3s lipo!!!!!
Gearing - 31 pinion/76 spur
Traxxas ESC cooling fan.
I have run this set-up for a couple of weeks now, in-between crashes!!, & have had concerns on the temp of the motor. Do not have a exact temp, but I don't even think Superman could hold his finger against it for more than 2 seconds!!.
The Gearing/battery I am using, is what Traxxas suggest for 70mph+, & I am sure I am pretty **** close!.
1.Is the motor heat an issue?
2.Is a heatsink available, & is it any good?
3.Any other suggestions for gearing (I mainly use my Rusty for tarmac/high speed circuits, fitted with 2.2 Anaconda's)
