Default motor temp????

what is the ideal motor temp of a motor when running for about 10 mins or so??? i just tested my new setup today which is a Novak GTS with 15T Peak Racing motor.....when i checked the temp it was 160-165F. isn't that a bit too high???

thanks!

+1, I'd say 180 is borderline, so yes sounds ideal

take a look at the discoloration of the comm and see if the brush shunts are turning colors. if they seem fine then you should be ok....for a while. try running a fan though.
