What a lot of you guys also need to remember is that your trigger finger plays a lot in temps if you gun hard on straights and jumps and coming out of turns you will drive up temps..... so take into affect the way you handle the throttle and run your motor temps based on that!!!!

Yep. Another huge factor in temps is weight. Lighter the truck, less strain on the motor, the lower the temps. However don't go too light ;-)

right...i know its not somewhere you want to be all the time but heard some people say they do run warm
It's like fish stories... What is "small" to you may not be small to me.

The 1/8 tires aren't an issue. They're nearly the same roll out as SC tires.

Due to track layout last time I ran with a 15 tooth and came off at about 130. I tend to like to drive smooth lines and really don't hammer the throttle like some.

So my temps are definitely good, I'm just wondering if that 10 degrees of timing is hurting or helping at all for my speed? If I take off the timing am I going to see a decrease in speed and then need to gear back up?

Woody
Understand that "10" on the Rx8's timing advance setting is 10% of 30 degrees, so only 3 degrees of timing. Hardly any at all.

However other esc's add "actual" timing especially if they're sensored only style. So running 0 is best with them.

My bad, I just plugged in my Hobbywing card to check my settings. Wouldn't you know it, my timing was on 15*. I put my punch on 1 and my timing on 0. I'm sure this will take care of my isue, I'll let you know tomorrow how much it lowers my temps. Thank you for your help.

That makes it a considerable amount more complicated for the average racer. But it looked good. I am sure he didnt like that I won, but we both had fun and after all, that is what matters.
Heard Rudy Rico lapped Matt at WcRc Damn Kid!!!!

He's saying 200* might be fine for you but not for him.

I wouldn't reccommend running anything lower than 50C, I run 65C and 70C myself!

Got my MIP kit today, got it installed, did a test run and all I can say is AWESOME!!! Fit and finish is second to none, truck looks awesome and it now handles like my Durango. You can feel how much lighter the truck is and how much more nimble it is. It feels like the truck is glued to the track. I can't wait to get a full race day on the truck to see what the true potential is.

I ran all three and the xerun 4k ran the coolest of the bunch.. all pushing simliar speeds, the hw has the most grunt when needed as well, easiest motor to make mid-air adjustments with.
