    I like to play on the safe side and this is just me but I never let my temp go pass 120. I'm not sure what the safe zone is but I'm sure other drivers here go way pass that. BTW welcome to the forum

    The general concensus has been to keep the motor (any BL motor) below 180. I don't even bother with a cool down unless I'm at 160 or so, there's really no need. The magnet isn't going to demagnatize at such low temps like 100-120.

    I don't normally let my motor get above 130. And now that I have one of FartofDoom's heat sinks I don't even bother thinking about letting my car cool down.

    Just installed heat sink and fan setup. Fartofdoom really hooked me up. Just took my xo to LHS to solder my set up... Can't wait to run it FAST... Hope I don't crash first time out...

    I made a shroud from plastic that keeps the incoming air from naca duct close to motor. Same principle as real air cooled motors. It gives a 10-15 degree cooler temp at end of run. If the outside air temp is 75, my motor temp will be around 125 without the shroud and around 112 with it. Even without it I've never heated up anywhere near the danger point but cooler is always better. I run my car at sustained speed so it works well. Bashing in low gear up and down the streets would benefit most by installing a motor fan.
