    Temps lower?...

    Castle 2400 3s and 4s was geared 16/54 and 16/52. Both got my temps up there quik on either battery.
    Decided to gear up and ran 22/52 and on 3s and 4s never got above 155. Why geared up are my temps lower and i can run a whole pack with safe temps? I thought that would raise them faster geared higher.. Stumped

    I did install revo slipper upgrade. Could that have made a difference?

    Slipper upgrade shouldnt change temps unless you changed how tight it was after the install

    I've found an under geared motor can heat up nearly as much as an over geared one, s'pose both just put a little too much work through the motor - too high - too much load so gets hot, to low - too much "revving out" so gets hot. Not entirely sure why but sure it happens
    Time I enjoy wasting is not time wasted

    Finding 20/50 seems to run fast on 3s and temps stay at 155 after a pack. Might drop to 19 for a tad more torque. 4s on that gearing is wicked fast but get maybe half 5000mah pack before its at 175
