I was going to ask the exact same thing. I experienced lower temps in the past in transverse orientation. The air underneath the car cools the motor, and it does seem to be very significant. I ran an inline setting, cut a hole in the baseplate on a old chassis, deepening the original slot all the way through, and used a fan on top, which blew air around the motor and out the bottom of the chassis and had the lowest temps of any previous set up.
