I was running the 7x1 MR (5mm blank) motor this weekend with no fan and no problems. It was 95deg plus with a track temp around 140. I agree with most of the other guys...get a 5mm arm. They are way more efficeint than the 4mm's. The low turn 4mm arms can fade late in a race due to overheating.

I tried both size webs and had the same problem. Running the GT7 with 14GA wire that i had just replaced. Could just be my driving style with my brakes and feathering, just might have to run a fan. Track temp was 154 and real humid.
