I threw a Reedy brushless system from a TA SC10 in my Traxxas Monster Jam truck running 2s lipo.
90t spur and 16 pinion.
I was checking temps and they got to about 165 F.
But after about 20-25 mins of running and jumping (mainly on tar road, some grass running), the truck slowed to barely anything and I noticed a tiny bit of smoke from the motor. Again it was about 165F. Can't remember esc reading but it wasn't high.
I let it cool and then tried again (for about 15 seconds) and it ran again.
Any ideas on what happened?
Should I look at my gearing?
