Looking for some guidance from the pro's. My Revo is 3 months old has been ran around 15 times. Recently I've been experiencing some heating issues with the motor and ESC. I am running the 18/54 gearing on 2S 5300 30C batteries mainly in the grass and dirt. After only around 10 mins of play time the ESC fan is kicked on with some readings at 160 F and the motor is hitting around 180 F. I bash pretty conservatively so I'm not going full throttle the whole time and it's only around 70 F outside for the temperature.
First thing I tried was to go back to the stock gearing and put on the original spur gear, but the temp problems were the same. So I guess I'm just looking for some other ideas like if bad bearings somewhere could make the system work harder and overheat or if I should cut holes in the body. Thanks in advance for the help.
Ohh and still using the stock Talon tires.
