Default What is a good endbell temperature?

Hi all,

I run a 10x2 Peak V2 Surikarn.

I am wondering what's a "good" endbell temperature? Right now I am getting ridiculous temperatures like 90 degrees celcius (about 202 F).

The copper on the com has changed shades and I am wondering how to fix that also.

Thanks for your suggestions.


Patrick.

The surikarn and hara motors, since they use the twisted comm, need gearing ridiculously high, since they rev so much more than the same motor with a std comm. If you gear them too low, then you'll end up unsoldering the motor (seen that happen, yes).

I have a straight com. But just wondering what is the "proper" temperature a motor should normally be running at?

With a stock motor running outdoors its good to keep the temperature under 160 F. I don't know whether this translates to modified motors though.

Temperature doesn't mean a whole lot. You should judge the temperature of a motor on the comm condition after a run. If you get one run before it changes to red, then your overgeared and running hot. I had a Team HV C2 last week that was the hottest motor I've ever taken off the track. I pulled it out, and the comm was still gold and the brushes weren't burnt. And with the new XXX brush, it actually likes the heat. I've gotten consistant numbers from a hot motor to a cool motor.
