    Just got my outerwears, just a question

    Well my summit, emaxx, and revo brushless all have outerwears now.

    With the amount of snow we have this will save me a lot of time cleaning the trucks up.

    I got one for the revo brushless just in case I accidently get near some water and get a splash.

    When running the revo in the summer should I remove it if it is really hot outside or is there enough air flow to just leave it on?

    Considering I am in Canada and "hot temperatures" are at least 3 months away.....

    I am thinking anything over 25 dec C being "hot".

    I would think that depends on your gearing, and how hard you're driving it. My $.02

    Yes, I agree. When it is hot outside, do not go mad with a gearing. Stock will be fine

    Stock gearing right now running 2x 2s 5800 lipo batteries....

    I have delusions of speed, just some fun bashing and stuff.

    That being said I do have some road tires and rims on the way....

    I run mine in the summer if the conditions are really dusty.
    Makes for a cleaner truck

    Like everyone else said, gear the truck accordingly and your temps should stay warm, not too hot.

    I would take it off during summer months.
    When it is really hot out I will not run my trucks during the middle of the day..
    only early morning or late evening..
    Would you go flip my truck back over??

    The revo may get hot if you have the stock body mounted low. I found with my Emaxx on hot days like 25+ that it would get hot bashing where the truck is accelrating a lot and under load with not much air flow. so I use to give it short breaks and a few speed bursts here and there. the truck ran great untill it was exposed to 1600 C. the motor even melted.
