    Rally vxl running temps

    Wondering what kinda temps you guys are getting off your stuff.
    Last run had a motor temp of 120*F
    stock setup rally with velineon 380
    Wondering what its safe to run these up to?
    Forgot to check ESC,but If I am not mistaken that has thermal shut down?

    ive been running my mustang 302 for the past 2 days i've had it. it came with the series adaptor for the batteries and the thermal cut off is at 203*F, i know because i've done it. i thought the adaptor was for parallel and it was for a series.

    as far as your motor temp, that is what i have had with mine. the esc runs about 10*F difference either up or down depending on how i've harrassed it.

    TOPS: 200... with a high risk of damaging the motor

    Geared perfect: 160-170

    Geared low: 140-150


    My temps are usually around 150-160 running 2200mah 2S 20C LiPo's in parallel with the "speed" pinion; everything else that matters stock.
    Whatever it is I just typed... could be wrong.

    LOL. I get 110 max, but then that's stock pack speed pinion. 3S here soon to change that!

    I know everyone has a different opinions on this but as for geared perfectly 170F IMO is a little high; it's only some 15C off the danger zone and no temp gun is 100% accurate I would stick to 160F
    Does more $ = More fun?
