the spray i think is video head cleaner, that what we do to cool down caburator for GP during race, EP seldom cos no endurance. but for small race where 20 ppl joint just 5-10 have to start next round we used to spray on the motor can *not directly on the comm experience the comm came off just after the spray. extreme hot and extreme cold the glue to hole the 3 piece comm fail.

We use to have a can of video head cleaner. (Nicon Brand - Yellow can with a blue cap) If you spray too much you would see frost building up. Works great to cool down the motor during the pit stop. Else you could for CO2 contact cleaner but be careful with this one...don't spray too much....ur motor magnet may crack!

I have run two enduro races. One race was at the Tri-Clone, and the second at S&N Trackside. The winners of both events drove their cars just like a 5 min race, basically a sprint race. They were faster; our slightly slower strategy was no match for them. All said and done, just build the motor just like you would for a normal race. However as everyone has said, gearing is critical. I hope this little insight helps.

any motor will do just bare in mind that the ratio and bearing is the main / most important thing

We use to bolt on 27T stockers armature in a modified can with bearing for optimum effciency and gear the motor to run for 'bout 10 minutes or so per 3300 packs. You can't go wrong. The rest of it is consistency and efficent pit stops.

If you have a chance ...check out the 24hrs enduro in the Europe. Learn a lot from them.

Will this setup kill the motor ?

I've seen one boy burn his speedo using 8T. He ran for 'bout half an hour or so and his QC2 decided to give up. He lost 'bout 15 min. before heading to tracks again.
