BL heat issues
I've finally got my head around heating issues and how to solve them. I took several pack to the track last night 3s, 4s, 5s. I'm running a Losi 8b with a Neu 1512 2.5d and a modded MambaMax, gearing is 11/46 On 3s, it barely gets warm but I can't quite clear the triple at WOT. On 4s, it's got the right balance, enough power to clear any jump but I can still grab WOT on the back straight for a second, it gets hot but I can run out the pack without thermalling my MM. On 5s, I'm feathering the trigger around 1/4-1/3, never anywhere near WOT, raging fast, lots of fun in a field but at track speeds, it gets much too hot, have to stop and cool at least twice to finish a pack.
So, now I see that the important thing when working on a setup is to know how fast you want it to go and build accordingly. I did go through some expense and frustration to figure this out but if anyone needs to ask someone who's already spent the money, lmk.
