I'm running only 2s, stock gearing, slipper, esc fan, temps in twenties, and I run it hard threw the grass and motor is super hot after maybe 10-15 min(I don't have a temp gauge but very hot to touch). I even smelled some kind of smoke afterwards but seems motor and esc is ok, I tried after it cooled off.
I'm thinking I need a really good motor fan heatsink any suggestions.
Integy make a good single fan setup. The dual fan will overload your bec.

Yea, I know about the one fan, any links on a good fan.
I use it with outerwears but a bit of water and slight dirt still gets in, so needs to be durable thanks.
I've been using the integy one that El Sob mentioned for about a month now. I also run with an outerwears and I've had no problem although I don't run through anything wet. They're only about ten bucks so you're not out a ton if it takes a crap. Honestly, I think the heatsink it's attached to does much more to dissipate heat than the fan will ever do anyway. I run 2s lipos and I've yet to get it over 130ish.

Yea I do like that but I think Integy or another company makes a more robust type metal grill instead of just the clear plastic fins
I use a ******* heat sink/fan combo and although the fan didnt last very long it cooled great and it is huge. I have ordered another fan and it should be here next week. I had to do a little dremeling to get it to fit but I enjoy that and its worth it in the end.
and my new fan came from here
does the fan on that Integy one just plug into the fan plug on the VXL-3S?
anyone know exactly what mm size the fan is on the Integy heat sink? if I order one I'd like to order a grill to put over it too. looks like maybe 30-40mm?

fix, run, break, repeat
I believe the integy is 30mm
