checked my belts. all is good thier.
So i called Castle. They said i most likely burned it up. They told me as soon as motor temps go above 200 degrees that there is damage that will be done. More importantly, It will still run fine, But over time the motor will continue to get hotter and hotter and less efficient. Once you cause damage it also raises the KV of the motor, so you dont know where its really rated. So they told me to use my castle link to test the motor. Apparently there is a hidden function for this that they explained to me. Given of course you have the right firmware revisions etc.
SO I am going to test the motor. In the mean time i ordered a new 1406 5700KV setup. They say that these 1406 motors with the 4 pole magnets run generally less hot. They also explained that the 7700KV and the 9000KV are really meant for short stints for top speed/drag racing. And that the 5700 is the better choice for bashing and top speed when paired with a three cell.
I will probably end up sending back the 7700KV if i find it really damaged and have them upgrade it to a 1406 4 pole for 80 bucks. Then use it for top speed drag runs only.
