    3S, stock electronics and hot temps outside will most likely overheat quickly unless geared down lower than stock.

    Lol - "overheat protection on esc", yeah it's supposed to........mine never "thermalled" but still managed to smoke away - get your gearing right (remember even changing the tyres can change what gear you should use - high bite needs lower gear), keep away from 3s (you have to be lucky or gear very low to not fry your esc on 3s) and if it does fry get a new one under warranty if you can, sell it unused and buy a new esc (Hobbywing SC8 is very cheap, very powerful, very reliable, and you can get a waterproof one)
    Time I enjoy wasting is not time wasted
