the speedie gets hotter than a normal speedie, but the motor is cooler. We tested them with a laser temp gun at a gas meeting, and i think it was about 60 degrees. i believe this is the normal operating temp.
We did have a one go into thermal, the other weekend, but it was in the thirties, the person geared down a bit and all was fine.
