Default 2650kv motor is meant for 4s...but what happens if only run 6s on it all the time?

ive seen ppl with the 2650kv and use 6s..eventhough its meant for 4s...what happens if i get one, and only use 6s on it? would it do some internal damage to the motor?

you will do external damage to the car thanks to stupid fast speeds

motor will be fine if you watch the temperature

Really depends on how you gear it.

what do you plan on doing with it? i use it for speed runs only and i dont run it to long. but with the gearing im using for speed runs it will get hot. with the stock gearing it will probably be fine.( i run 26t pinion 51t spur for speed runs. i have run it for 10min max it just starts to get hot)i also have external caps and an external bec on my esc so that doesnt get hot

watch your gearing, start real low otherwise you'll fry your motor.
