Around 110 celsius (230F) in my experience. It will give you a warning it's about to thermal by slowing down and cutting power to the motor intermittently.

The question I have is, how do I make it run cooler? Either without buying new stuff (prefered, obviously) or buying a higher turn motor, or buying something that would help, cheers.

Hey mate,

I have run a 2.5tekin motor with my car and it got warm very quickly and had no problems. But I never run for more than 6min. I would say with a 3.5 turn motor the battery would of been flat or almost flat after ten minutes and I believe that could of been your issue why you had no response. Lipo cutoff The tekin still gets power but doesn't put out power to the motor.
