Default Viper Motor Question

I have a Viper R/C VST10.5t motor and a Novak Kinetic Spec ESC. My question is does the this series of Viper motors have an internal temperature sensor? The reason I ask is because I hooked up the ESC to Novalink and I looked at the temperature and it said the motor temp was 200 and the ESC temp was 120 during the last run I made.

I temped the motor and ESC with a temp gun while I was running and when I was done and the motor and ESC were both were never above 115. This was no boost and stock timing on the motor

Check in with the peeps over in the Official Viper thread. Here's the link. The Official Viper RC Solutions Thread

I've heard of a lack of compatibility with Novak ESC and non Novak motors. I believe it may have had something to do with the temperature sensor.
