Guys I am getting ESC temps in the 170f range and motor temps in the 170-180 range too. Running for 5 minutes. On my Full size ERBE the Motor never goes over 140 and ESC never over 130. On My 3 different VXL's I use the fan on esc so that stays cool and never have motor heat issues. So what gives I have not even run LIPOs and that is my intention. At this rate I will overheat with lipos in a minute or so. BTW I am running on the street and my driveway only so far with stock gearing.
