If you are careful about the motor and controller temps (use a fan on the controller) you might be able to gear that motor to around 7.00:1 or maybe a little lower. Novak recommends 7.3:1 for sedans. What are you running it in?

Nope. You don't need to worry about motor heat with the brushless, it's the speedo heat. If anything, mount a fan on the top of the speedo.

Pick up a 5VDC fan and wire it to your battery.

You could, but that's a lot of dead weight to be lugging around in the chassis.
