Between 130 to 160 degrees is pretty good. Anything more than that seems to discolor the com pretty bad.

THE BEST WAY TO DETERMINE THE TEMP IS IF YOU CANT KEEP YOUR HAND ON IT MORE THEN A COUPLE SECONDS, IT TOOOO HOT. GEAR DOWN

Luke,
Gear the motor for the track & don't worry about temp to much. You should gear so that the car reaches top speed about 3/4 down the strait, then adjust for the fastest lap times. The only time you should be conserned about temp is when the motor starts to fade in the 5min run. I should be out to the race on the 14th and me or Dom will help you out.

it also depends on how hot it is out side and how how the track is . like you are geard perfectly for your track but after your run you touch your motor and its SUPER HOT that you cant even touch it but thats only cause the temp of track and the temp it is outside.

Just curious. I'm currently experementing with my Mi2 and a vented style clamp from 3 racing, it's designed to allow the vent holes in the can not to be blocked. Just curious ...

Ok.....for those of you that think your motor is getting hot only because it is overgeared are wrong. Your motor could be geared just right but your bearings suck and your putting an excess load on the motor. Most of the time I find that guys are way undergeared because they are afraid of being over geared and that burns up the motor just as fast. Ask the guys around the track what their motors temp, gearing, springs, and brushes are and you should never burn up a motor.

one thing to keep in mind when temp gunning motors is that the cans are shiny. You need to adjust the emmisivity of your temp gun to compensate for the reflectivity of the material other wise your readings will be totally out ot lunch. You notice this effect in more dramatic fashion if you temp gun a chrome pipe, it will read really low even though its generally much hotter than the head on a nitro motor.
