a motor that is cool after a 5 minute race?

never heard of that problem before...don't see how the motor would stay really cool...like 38c human body temp...

you should be able to touch the motor for 1 to 2 secs before you jerk away.
if you jerk away from the motor when u touch it accidentally then its a bit too hot...

156 is ok, I've run some up to 170, and been ok. But you should keep them around 160 or less. I ran a Hellfire stock to 245, and it still worked, but I don't recommend it!!

Sounds to like you should be able to gear up a tooth or two on your pinoin and still be acceptable as far as temp.
I have run Oval motors that came off the track 300+ degrees and no problem
