Well, yes and no. More technology is put into a handwound mod motor, so they are designed to run cooler, BUT they put out more power generating more heat.
As long as you don't smoke the motor, your probably not getting too hot. You'll lose performance at the end of the run if your not using a fan, but that doesn't matter if your just bashing. And with those 16dollar mod motors, you can gear them for top speed, b/c even if you do burn it up, it's not that expensive to get a new one.
