How soon your motor get heated up and how fast you can discharge your Lipo to 3.8V?


Hello All,

I was always curious to test how soon my motor get heated up and how fast I can discharge my Lipo to 3.8V at full throttle.
  • Ran continuous for 10 minutes at full throttle up and down using 4wd buggy - battery reached 7.97V and temperature of motor to 153F.
  • Rested for 10 minutes and temperature cooled down to 125F.
  • Ran continuous for 5 minutes at full throttle up and down using 4wd buggy - battery reached 7.75V and temperature of motor to 152F.
  • Ran continuous for 5 minutes at full throttle up and down using 4wd truggy - battery reached 7.60V and temperature of motor to 144F.
  • So it took 20 minutes for the Lipo to reach LVC. (I consider 3.8V per cell as my LVC)

everything you posted sounds perfectly normal

there are many variables which can change results such as gearing, tire/wheel rollout, weight, etc...

it's a good idea to regularly check temps as a way to know the health of your car

Battery < 120F
ESC < 140F
Motor < 160F

as temps go up, it's a good indicator that something is wrong... binding in the drive train, etc...

Always a good idea to rebuild your car, clean inspect your bearings once every 20-25 battery cycles.
