It'll stay between 120 and 140. It won't go over 140 unless your driving wide open 24/7. If you do then yes you could cause damage to both esc and motor. Brushless motors are not like brushed nor are there escs. Be cool with speedruns as heat is a electronics killer in the summer months.

Mine floats around 130 if that. Keep in mind these motors work great due to the gear ratio.

Just walked in the door. Great day and had tons of fun! Anyhow, don't worry if you have a temp gun or a way to test motor temps. Go by feel if worst comes to worst. If its to hot to touch, then its to hot. All motors in our karts run hot but never enough to burn shall I say.

Its hard to tell the temp with the motor being a pod. Try touching part of the pod that faces out. The sides of the motor if something were to go wrong would heat it up. Its a good practice but you shouldn't worry about temps. Chances are your kart will come to a stop before something was to fry.

Its one of the easiest ways to check heat if you don't own a thermo gun.

I don't even check. I never have. No need to and I know others who do the same.

+1 I can't think of the last time I checked. I'd be more worried about running the cells getting hot before my motor.

Lets not foget about long practice runs stretching 35 minutes plus non stop. Those runs can get your cells hot from quick drain. Motors temps are never an issue its the cell temps that should be watched.

Any brushless or cells will be warm after a race. The key word is warm not hot.

Goop, Simply Green or WD40 work but you really have to wipe and squeeze your tires dry.
