Never went above 80 deg C and it still died. Maybe its good for blinky....
Turned out that the shim on the rotor at the sensor end dissapeared. I believe it broke from the high revs and flew out the vent holes. This caused the magnet to rub against the sensors which causes wrong signals sent to the esc. Replaced it and tested it and it now runs fine, so far.
Ran against some other fellas last weekend and performance was on par with other motors. Was running with a Hobbywing V2.1 esc and the setting was:
Endbell timing: +1
Boost accel: 200rpm/degree
Turbo accel: 18
Temp: 85C (Ambient 35C)
Power was consistent throughout 5 min but track time was limited and I believe some further tests would yield better results.
Will update further at a later time....
