Default Ventilation Tips for RC8T RS?

Any advice on keeping the engine cooler on a stock RC8T other than buying the Bulldog body?

Do you have holes cut in the windshield of the body? that will help a little.

Oh. I don't know of anything else that would keep it cooler with the stock body.

oh wow thats pretty warm LOL

is it the AE .28 pro that comes with it? I had one in my buggy when i first got it and it only lasted about 5 gallons and it started to run like crap and always wanted to run hot. So its possible it could be the end of its life. How many gallons do you have through it apprx?
