Erhm... i suppose the reason WHY i've not ever been bothered by it, it that my unit never really thermals on me...
I temped the motor on the 38 degree day (100F)and it was reading at 76deg(169F) C. It was really freakin hot... other than that, i've not had any issues with it at all even on relatively hot days.. (around 33-34deg celcius - 93F). Even running back to back packs didn't seem to upset it.
To be honest i REALLY don't want to send it back. I'm sure it has been more than 120days and so far i've not had any issues with it. . .
Unless i'm not getting as much power as i should from it or something, then i think i'll leave it be. Don't fix what's not broken.. (Yes i do realise the terrible irony here... )
Should i be concerned that this temp probe thing also affects say the run-time/punch/speed etc??..
maybe time to mail Charlie..
**edit** had a look at last time the car thermalled (got it on Video..!!) - it does indeed STOP for a short while. But then it crawls back..... could this be because i';m just on what Novak recommends is the max temp? I suppose the motor would have been a bit hotter than that, but cooled sufficiently to regain operation?.. Dammit you guys had me scared... though it didn't really make sense to me..
so no-one can relate to the car crawling back?..
Sorry - my bad.. bad memory!..
