    No where near too hot.

    Motor/ESC temps:
    200F is tops
    180F is a good race temp
    160F is a good bashing temp

    NiMH:
    115-120F is normal

    LiPo:
    100-110F is telling you they are working... and should not exceed that.
    Most of the time, LiPo will run no more than ambient temps though.
    Whatever it is I just typed... could be wrong.
