lol. Yeah, usually my motor is cooler than my tires after a race.
One practice though, I was having a blast running hard laps and I completely lost track of time. I didn't realize until later, my cooling fan had broken. So it turns out I was running for more than 15 minutes, possibly the entire time with no fan, in 90 degree heat. Did around 60 laps. That amount of punishment was what it took to get the motor just up over 170. Ooops.
I was a bit worried I might have cooked it, but it still works great.
edit: I felt I should state the fan that broke was NOT a BOSS cooling fan.
While I'm editing this here, I think I should add that my ESC (RS pro) was running with 51 boost (3xxx-18500), 11 turbo, ramp 2. 10 on the can. It's truly amazing how cool it runs. I check my motor every time I pick up my car and the only time I've felt it more than just slightly warm was that 15 minute practice run when my fan broke. 5 or 6 minutes with probably too much boost and it just feels a little warm.
interesting (to me) side note: after 15 minutes my 5000mah 40C battery was at 3.8v per cell. Just over a storage charge. Maybe it's time to have 10 minute mains in electric? BOSS motors would be an even hotter (by being cooler) commodity
