Unhappy Kyosho Zx-5 Brushless help

Hey all,

Have been having alot of problems running a LRP sphere in my Zx-5.
I am running a ZX5 with all carbon works parts.
I am running a LRP sphere with 3 star motor.
My geaaring has been fine and even undergeared heaps but still Thermals every race.
This thermlling is driving me nuts......I even tried cutting about 9 vents in the body but still thermalling..
Any ideas at all still havent finished a race?

note these are only 5 minute races and it thermals around the 4 min mark..
