Exclamation 23 T S1 Glory Team Luna is too hot

I just bought 23T Superstock Team Luna S1. I tried this motor for 8 minutes run, but as a resut I feel it was too hot (cannot touch by finger). I drive TC3 with esc GT7 and final gear ratio is 6 (spur 72 and pinion 30).

Any idea why it is too hot?

Thanks

well it could be from wrong gearing, but it also could be the 8 minute run. You have to let the motor cool before each run.

Also check if your armautre is burnt or not, you said you couldnt touch it with a finger, sounds like it was fryed.

I checked the armature is not burned/fried out (includes wires). Is it a matter of to low final ratio that caused hot. What would be the best final ratio for 23T?

Thanks

It's somewhat normal for these motors to get quite a bit warmer than your standard 27t motor for one...8mins.... and also I belive that the S1 is the RPM version..which does get a bit hotter due to the fack that it's up in the high RMP most of the time.. the SII or Torque version is a much better motor than the Rpm based one

23T stock is usually untouchable after 8 mins
we have geared these things at 5.5 and below although they generally don't last that many runs, they still work.
For practice runs i'd say use bearings and if possible a V2 endbell

I used standard endbell (stand up brush). I replaced bushing with bearing already.
