Hey everyone just want some advice on motor temps/pinion-spur setup. Had a race meet on the weekend where my motor got real hot its still performing OK I think but so hopefully havent thermaled it.

I geared it down over the day to reduce temps and by the time I got it to a safe level I was being over taken on the main straight by other competitors but it was very good in the tight stuff.

So this is for 17.5 Motor Stock racing running a blinky 0deg ESC (Speed Passion Reventon Pro)

The motor is a Speed passion V 3.0 with 15 Deg of timing and both front and rear gearbox are free turning, have new bearings all round & I have a motor heat sink no fan but.

Now I was running very aggressive gearing at the start of the day So i should have known better, Also the track was high grip with alot of full throttle section so maximum load for the motor, other competitors were saying ther motors were hot also, the ambient temp was 27deg (80.6 F)

Data as per below.

36/81= 110deg (230 F) 5.5575 (Lots of top end performance degraded on last 4 laps)
31/75=92deg (197.6 F) 5.975806452 (Same pace slightly quicker as the field performance degraded on last lap)
29/81=62deg (143.6 F) 6.898965517 (Reduced top end overtaken on straights no loss in performance)

From the data I gathered the sweet spot is maybe 6.25 ratio which will be a 32 Pinion.

Also I was going to install a Fan some how next to the motor and I could back timing off.

Question is how many people have had a motor get this hot and be OK? How does this compare to other peoples 17.5 setups?

Also for comparison I run a Dex210 with a Speed passion MMM 17.5 and a 5.27 ratio and it happily sits at 78Deg (172 F) after races but that's only 1 gearbox and 2 wheels to turn.

Any help/suggestions would be great.
Thanks for the feedback on this issue

Had a race meet on the weekend and I actually found what was causing my heat issues.

Both rear hub outer bearings had failed but you could only tell if you put side load on the bearings changed these out for some new ones.

Combined with a 30mm Yeah racing fan on the motor I was in the 70-80deg range with a FDR of 5.88 (34-81) and 20 deg of timing.

A bit better the 110Deg I had last race meet.

Also got some shells done in the durango Dex210 colour scheme in my 210 and 410.

Any 48 pitch pinion will fit if you have the stock spur. And I'm going to be honest 4 17 tooth pinion sounds like a little overkill.

I am looking for durango part number 310005, I referred to it as a pinion, but Durango lists it as a bevel gear, sorry for the confusion

I recently got a Dex410 in the stable , its a r model , and I want a little feedback from the group if you will ... First day out , Broke the pin holder at the front of the rear assembly . I bought a alum replacement from the track / shop I was at , as they did not have a plastic one available. They did not have , or know I needed ,the small plastic bushings that go on the pins as they ride in the block. So , its a bit sloppy to say the least. I asked my LHS to get me a set . That was 3 weeks ago . Does it normally seem to take a while to get parts in if you have to order them ? My lhs just doesnt stock spares for 1/10 vehicles , so we will always be ordering them. Is their a short list of parts that are usually harder to find then others that I can go ahead and put in the box ? I have arms , spurs, rear hubs , and few other bits , but having a set of 7$ plastic bushings put a buggy out for three weeks just sucks ...

From your sig it looks like you'd have some parts laying around you could pull from to hold you over. Or just go to a local hardware store and get some small washers. I order most of my durango parts from tower or amain. Download the manual to reference the part numbers you need.

This is what i needed , I used the wrong words to describe them , Team Durango Suspension Arm Pivot-Ball Set TDR330037 ,

http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...vot-Ball-Set-8

I dont have anything that uses bushings ( pivot balls ) like this. I just thought it was odd , that something like this would be so hard to get.
