I am new to the RC auto/trucks scene (been flying helis for the last three years) and having lots of fun with my new Stampede 4x4 Vxl. After an outdoor session yesterday there was still some juice left on the NiMH lipo so I put my Stampede upside down and ran it for maybe around 4 to 5 minutes... Not at full throttle but at a variety of speeds to try to run down the NiMH, also steering the wheels back and forth all the time.
I did notice the motor got hot... Not scalding hot but from my experience with Scorpion motors on my helis it was around 50 to 60 C. I could touch it for 5 to 10 seconds before I had to let go. This got me started researching heat sinks for the Vinileon 4 pole motor. Can anybody recommend a heat sink / heat sink fan combo that will fit this motor? Thanks!
A few pics of my Stampede my wife took while I was doing some drifts and donuts in the snow:
