If you are using a lot of braking action when you are driving that helps to add heat to your motor.

Manuel,
I am surprised that you didn't fry your 11 Turn with that 21 tooth pinion. I suppose if you are only using it stop/start for fun and not running it full pelt for a full battery in a race situation then thats what it is saving it from certain meltdown.
Before i sold my 03 for my new 04 i was running a 9 Turn single with a 12 tooth pinion. That was a lot of fun.

Ye its weird; you'd expect it to die a fiery death but it doesnt. And it isnt a top of the line motor; maybe thats whats saving it, the fact that Fantom assumed I'd abuse it. Most of the driving is pretty full on though, but i do take it easy every so often. Other than that, I do look after it, and maybe constant motor and driveline maintenance is what has kept this motor alive.

I'd love to race but I haven't the time (or the money!)

A 12 triple (of the same brand) has had its adhesive holding the magnets in melt, and i have had a very cheap battery pack lose its shrink wrap.

Quick question; constant braking heats up your ESC too doesnt it, as well as causing arcing and such on the comm? I suppose there'd be energy loss somewhere.

I find that my 4 Year old Novak ESC handles loads of braking with ease, It is hardly warm after a run. I can't explain why but it just is.
Constant Breaking does usually raise the motor temps though and yes there is usually alot of arcing under braking and i assume that this would affect the comm negatively.

Default Just my 2 cents worth steevo...

i'm still running a TA-03F Pro DJS in my country's open modified touring class. My setup is this...

TA-03F Pro David Jun Special with all the mods included plus...
Keyence V-Zero Extreme ESC
LRP Phaser Reciever
Tamiya 3000 mAh Ni-Mh packs with deans connectors
Tamiya 11T motor hardwired
Kose 15T pinion gear on Tamiya stock black spur gears
Custom made torque bars on Kose front and rear uprights
Tamiya aluminum motor heat sink (the new item)
Kose front foam bumper

I made a cut on the motor pod to accomodate the heat sink which helps cut down the heat. also, i made a few mods on the front bumper which create a venturi effect on the bumper and directs air to the motor... see if this works on your car. after all, The Ta-03 gave tamiya its first national championship in America...

Sounds Great Mr Makkinen,
I was going to cut the motor cowl and install the new type motor heatsink as you have but I sold the car after i got my new TA04S Kit and never got around to it. Some pics of your car would be great as Manuel suggested.
Why do you not have the Ball Diffs Installed???The TA03F Pro/DJ Special comes with them standard but you are running the standard black gears....

Manuel, Steevo,

as soon as i get my hands on a digital camera, i'll post it here. dont worry... i'm using ball diffs on both ends but the black gears are the spur gear and counter gear. i got tired of putting new white spur gears after every race because it gets stripped every time...
