ok, I have a GM racing V3R esc rated for 18t at 6 cell, I can run a 19t reedy spec(flame lable) with an 8 cell pack, the esc gets to about 130*, and the motor gets to 160*
hot, but not too hot, obviosly the esc is under rated.
today I wanted more torque, so I put a 27t monster stock motor in it and ran it with 6 cells because my 8 cell was charging, the esc stayed around 100* but the motor fryed itsellf at 400*+
I checked the trany for any binding and found non got one of my other monster stock motors and tryed it again, makeing sure that the mesh was set right and that it rolled smoth, I stoped that motor from frying at 200* after 3 min. of runing.
this is a stampede with the stock sper and 22 tooth pinion both times
