Default Enduro Help

We are running a 5 hour enduro race at my local track with 4 members in each team and only a 540 handout motor. I use a rollout of 47.5 in 540 class during a 6 minute race with great results. Has anyone done this before? please give some tips, what should i use as the rollout in such a long race?

Run the same rollout you normally run the motor will hold up fine

i'd gear the motor a bit softer say 44mm role out
im a noob but at a certain point the motor will over heat and either desolder or throw a wind due to the resin on the armature. both are rare and unlikely but that few tenths a lap are well lost if u finish
just my 2 cents
id run several fans by the way with the best heat sink u can find its worth it cause u can chase em down at the end when their motor ffades just make sure u know how long u can run on a pack after all soon as it dumps your loosing precious time.

CHEERS FOR THE REPLIES. I THINK I'LL JUST HAVE TO HAVE TEST RUNS WITH NEW MOTORS TO DETERMINE ROLLOUT AS TO OVERHEATING AND/OR THROWING A WIND.
