This seemed strange to me, thats why i would like to ask you guys a question.
So i used to have a 2wd slash with titan 12 combo in there, i replaced it with vxl and kept the stock gearing 23/86. For some reason, running Nimh 4200mah 8.4v battery my motor gets hot (u wont hold it for more then 2 secs it will burn your skin) so i assume it is at about 160 degrees which is not what it should be. Why it seems strange is because i am running stock gearing, cars max speed is about 34-36 mph.
What can be the problem ? ESC is not as hot, about 80 degrees.
I noticed that when i ran my car on tall grass, even thought tall grass for stock gearing and stock wheels shouldn't make my motor overheat !
