I had it at 20 deg, but the esc was getting to 156 deg. It dropped to 140 when I lower the motor timing. I am running 25/75 gearing and a short packs, so around 1620 grams. My viper ran cooler. I am just surprised at the temps. Also my cap is mount to the the heat sink, so maybe less air flow. But i have no where else to put it until i get smaller receiver.
Geared too high. Try 78/22 or 23
Run the caps in the foam temporarily. If you are talking about srs, everything is running super hot because of the massive amount of traction. For your chassis make sure to grease it up with wd-40 prior to running.

yeah...running 3 of the 9 classes, makes it hard to just clean tires, lol. Need to get a better routine for chassis cleaning and greasing. Matt trimmings told me the same thing about wd40 on the chassis. I was hoping to try the AE chassis tape and see if its better. Well the esc was running the same or higher temps than the motor. And yes, I was at SRS. my stock buggy is actually coming off at 122 on the motor and 98 on the esc. Reedy motor and orion esc in both cars. Oh, I have the mod firmware on the orion also. I was not even using brakes....

I have an R10 pro in my buggy, and a large spektrum receiver I had to dremel a notch in to make it fit! (probably the largest receiver out there ) I actually mounted the capacitors on top of the receiver. This allows me to keep the battery compartment free to run a saddle/brick or a shorty depending on conditions. It also allows me to run a fan. Now I haven't actually run the buggy yet because of being away from the track for the summer, so I have no idea on how it affects temps. I can post pics of the setup tomorrow.

What does the wd40 on the chassis do?

its supposed to help keep the clay from sticking and building up on the chassis. once it builds up on the chassis, the tacky clay on the chassis sticks to the tacky clay on the track. The track is pretty tacky most of the time. I could hear my shoes sticking to the surface when I was turn marshaling. Since the MM car likes to slap more, it seems to build up more clay and then starts to literally stick the landings.

No more hard parts for me.

I feel dumb asking this, are the shock bodies and shafts the same length with the springs being different? I have been away from the hobby for years and this my first buggy build.

Front shock bodies and shafts (and springs) are shorter than the rears. You should visually be able to tell the difference.

same length as what? the original B4? I think the rear might, but not the fronts. And the shock bodies are completely different. If your referring to the b4.2, the "size" is the same, but they are not the same. The area where the orings go was changed.

If you got 3 or 4 of the same length bodies or shafts get ahold of AE and they should get you the correct ones fairly quickly. Somebody in QA wanted to get home early on a friday and missed it I suppose.
