Reef_rc,

I did not see where you posted what type of Battery you were using.

What brand, capacity and most importantly Discharge rating?

Recall that I measured my buddy's Gerry (simano) the initial Tiger .10 motor which has identical 1250Kv. The AMP draw was close to 31-AMPs at wide open throttle.

I suspect that something to do with the ESC programming is to blame as the timing advance is not matching the motor. I do not believe Silver Series 35-AMP has automatic detection input impedance of the motor to allow for optimal Timing Advance of the RIMFIRE outrunner once you connect your Battery pack to the ESC. If this is the case then, your motor / esc and perhaps your battery are getting pretty hot because the operational setup on the ESC, especially at low throttle. A few years ago Castle Creations had an issue with the PHX-25 due to this problem and now all of their ESC's are Auto Detect for Motor input impedance and thereby, optimal timing advance.
