    I'm late to the party but I'm running 18/54 on both 3 & 4s. On 4s it's gotten as high as 152 degrees with ambient approaching 100 degrees. That motor really puts a smile on my face but I haven't...

    Just in case you only ordered the rebuild kit (5352R), you'll also need 5351 in order to upgrade your slipper. And when you do it, don't lose the spring from the stock setup. The spring that comes...

    I have to agree with Matt about that Sidewinder 8th ESC. Full disclosure, I only have five days of experience with my new setup but that thing is a BEAST! We had 100 ambient temps here and running...
