Default Updated Leopard Brushless System

I just got the Leopard 4370kv brushless system from hobbyhot and I've heard people say that if the motor got over 160 degrees the adhesive for the magnets starts to melt. My motor get to 191 degrees and I ran it at about 160 degrees for like 5 minutes and it still works great. The esc has "V2" on it and the people like JANG who were having problems it did not. Also, on the box it says "LEOPARD Combo Kit". The programming card is way more complicated(advanced) then the others

My experience is that the enamel on the motor windings usually burns first, then yous gets the smoke. Personally, 160F is pushing it for me. I like to keep it in the 150Fs. Remember that the motor can is much cooler than the innards.
