the sc10 4x4 can be geared correctly all day long and still have temp issues. the motor is in an area that does not get enough airflow. its that simple.

thats why many have done the fan mod.

admittedly like ive said before iam a heat freak, i dont want to burn up a motor so i look for the best ways possible to keep what i have cool.

im gonna drop a tooth from what i was running with the fan and try again tomorrow. cross fingers , lol.

gotta ask dude... what exactly do you think is hot...? I had been running my lrp x12L 4.5 geared properly and it would be 210 consistently which is perfect for those motors. Dont, believe me...? call LRP and they will tell you that 220 is the worry point for the x12 motors since they have such little ventilation. Ran that motor for over a year with NO, I repeat, NO problems EVER!!! would pull it apart every other weekend to look it over and it was perfect!! only reason I dont run it now is because I am running my Reedy 4.5 550 that was given to me about a month before they were even released. Love my LRP motors though, just like the power and smoothness of my Reedy sonic motors.

ive heard any where from 160-200 is to hot. after 200 the magnets demagnetize so iam told.

and im talking about the castle 1410 motor.


as for everyone else with the "plus1" you dont think the sc10 has a ventilation issue ? or am i just overly concerned with heat ?

getting rid of the RX box completely lets the motor get alot cleaner air without doing any other mods.

the fan mods do look great, but i dont need it for my trinity 4.5 @ 62/13 with no timing. comes off under 140 after 8-9 minutes

you are just ovely concerned with heat. Not saying the truck has a ventilation issure but at the same time, there is nothing but space and air under those bodies. look at i believe it was prolines website, they have a fancy video showing the turbulenc and air vortex you get inside a old, non high flow body. thats gonna cool the motor right there. most motors, 180 is your danger number. 160 is pretty good and 170 175 is where i would start getting concerned with my reedy motors. Like I said, I talked to LRP and they said that the x12 motors have a bit better temperature accepting magnets in there motors.

Yeah i was going to use some screen door screen to cover one side of the fan if i do it.

id say always gear a motor to be 160 before putting a fan on it for if a fan happens to fail.

i used a screen and that wasnt the problem. the casing of the motor cracked.

gearing without the fan for 160 is a good idea just never got around to it. then the fan breaks.

Running 12/62 with the reedy 4.5 and it's coming off at 156 after 10-12 minutes. No receiver box. After a 6 min heat it's at about 142*. I would be worried till 180
