i know i can get a fan for the esc but i have not seen much for the velineon motor. i just heard about the strc motor heatsink plate but how much cooler will i run with that? anything else that will help?
The best option for lowering motor temps is an aluminum tranny case. They run between $30-$70 and will drop temps 20°-30°. Also, running lower gearing will help.
Was an xl-5, now its vxl-ent!
well im assuming it would dissipate heat better, but would it help that much cause its not really even attached to the motor?
Aluminum's thermal conductivity is very high. Used as a transmission it acts like a big heatsink, transfering the heat away from the motor.
i cant fit a heat sink on the motor. there is to much crap in the way.
So back to the original question, has anyone tried the STRC heatsink? I've been wondering about them too. Maybe I'll just get one and let you guys know if it works.
Well with the velineon plugs being on the cylinder rather than petruding straight from the bottom AND the stock tranny/bumper a heatsink is VERY difficult and needs a lot of customization to get on. I have one for a 4x4 but im gunna have to shave off **** near 2/3 of the fins to get it to pass everything.
