    Hey guys how's it going.....would just like to know the max temp on a Brushed motor....just got my nice setup on my truck the new HW 1080 with a coolRC 35t brush motor .I ran it the other day, it was 180max at the connection side (sorry don't know what that part is called) should I lower the pinion to lower the temp if its to high
    Hopefully I explained myself right ...
    Thank you

    yeah drop a couple of pinion sizes for sure, SCX10 too slow to cope with that temp for sure
