    Motorization Question.

    What are all the things that can cause a brushless motor to over-heat?

    Over gearing, over voltage, too much strain in the drive line, etc. Depends on a lot of things...

    ambient temps play a factor, resistance in the motor ie. undersized motor, and oversized esc. (connecting a mm2 with 8 gauge to a 1415 2400kv motor with 13 gauge would cause excess heat in the motor simply because of the motor wiring being smaller then the esc's and offering more resistance to the current flow.

    Large heavy tires can cause heat as well.
