Hey guys! I finally got my P4DE up and running with a warranty replacement VXL system. It works great now (no more cogging issues), but I have found after running through a 2s pack that my motor temps were up at 180F and ESC was around 150F. I'm currently running 11/54 gearing, but I do have trenchers all around (not taped - I'm fine with the ballooning). The outside temps were around 50F.

Do the trenchers really cause that much heat due to their size/weight/ballooning? Everything else is stock and nothing is binding. I rarely hit top speed with this combo and I'm wondering if I need to gear down even further? Let me know what you think.
