Losi 6.5T motor no timing
What am I doing wrong? How do I get the temps down?
It sucks, I've been dealing with this crap for a few weeks. Only thing different that I did was use an 89t spur from associated. Been hearing good results with onroad guys using lower c rated batteries to keep heat down too.

Saw that, I did put on another cap tho not tekin original and not any difference.

I have a few holes in the shell but the 410 shell doesn't offer much in the way of air flow if mods aren't done.
Im thinking about a fan but heard that it shouldn't be needed.

I have just installed it in my new V3 so its all fresh.

2 of the lipo packs that I am using aren't real new and not a heap of punch, still drives hot

EDIT: I have now gotten a few tips mainly from here that will test tomorrow
Heres my V3

Cut out the vents on both sides. The rectangular portion behind the Tekin Racing sticker should be removed on both sides IMO. That is a start also some motors will like a little more gear than 19. I have setups from Pros that are running up to a 22 with a 6.5.
A really loose slipper will heat up the esc as well.

I built the slipper at 8.5mm Ill look at giving it a turn or 2.
I wasn't using that shell I did have on one of my older ones with holes, but thanks I will cut those.
Do you mean on the L+R sides and F+R of the rectangles?

I might put a couple of holes in the front window as well

Hey Peeps...
How many have gone from std shocks to big bores.?
Was it worth the upgrade? What idiosyncrasies did you notice going from one to the other?

TIA

Cheers

I really like the big bores on our indoor track. There was nothing wrong with the standard but the big bores are certainly smoother over all the divots on our track surface. They settled the car down and made it more predictable for me.

A shot in the dark but you don't have the solder posts shrink wrapped do you?

They can act as a heat sink.

I have a v3 and I'm running a 6.5 and am running an 18 pinion/stock spur, I have holes cut in front and back of the rise on the side of the body to let air flow over the motor and the ESC. I've found that running the Tekin ESC on the 2nd power level, not the 0 degree timing but the 15 degree timing seems to lower temps. Sounds funny but it worked the same on my RX8 last summer going from 0 to 15 degrees timing cooled the RX8 down. Motor timing is on the first or second positive mark and I don't have any motor or ESC heat issues.

I have been running a 6.5 on a 23 at about 8 minutes at a time and havent had a problem. On a pretty small track tho. wide open for about 2 seconds. few thing are cut out on the body. i did try to run a lil boost once..got really hot.

Thanks
Ive managed to get a fan in there and make a few holes, tried 17T pinion on a smaller tighter track than last and it was a bit better. I have the timing at about 60 now Ill try and lower it again

I too have learned that running a fan on the ESC took care of my heat issues.

Yeah but that the tekin RS pro can do a 2.5T with no mention of needing a fan, kinda hoped that I wouldn't need one. Oh well it doesn't take up too much room and blow backwards so might get a little more speed on the straight

its not really the design of the tekin needing the fan its the body and compact space inside the 410 that make it needed. after looking at the bulldog body cutouts it looks like they are cutout from the back and will not increase the air flow inside the body but will help with removing the heat.
