Apart from the pros and cons of lipo, I was just wondering if LiPo's make the motor hotter or cooler. I am running the Velineon system. Sorry for being so nooby guys, but thanks in advance for your help. The reason im asking you this is because right now, I am running a 12/54 gearing setup, with an Integy heat sink w/ duals fans on the motor, but it still gets hot after about 5 mins, and want to make sure I get a better gearing for lipo, if needed of course. I run on crushed granite, grass and asphalt, oh and my local track (which is sort of medium to hard packed clay-y stuff). Again thanks in advance for your help!
