Hey guys, I've bought an E-revo about 2 months ago and now I finally have the time to go out and run it. My tires are now balanced and ready. I will be running the stock 8.4v NIMH batteries that came with it. Now, I've read on this forum and other forums too that people are having problems with their ESC and Motor frying. I will be running mine on the parking lot behind the local church and will be doing high speed runs. I have bought a Castle CC blower fan for the motor and I've also cut a hole in the body to allow air flow. Please please please tell me that my ESC and motor will not let me down. I've dropped $850 on the E-revo and is the most expensive truck I've ever bought. I will be very angry if that happens. I am not a rich guy
What are the extra precautions that I need to take to not upset the ESC and motor? I would also like to know the maximum temperatures for the ESC and motor (using stock 8.4v NIMH batteries) so that I can monitor the temps. I'll have my Duratrax temperature gauge handy. Please advise. Thank you all.
