My motors keep getting way to hot. No matter what pinion tooth count I install it just won't stay cool. What else can I do to make it run cooler?

mounted another pair of shoes for the wraith and started bending some aluminum for a front bumper. havent gotten very far on that yet.

I've never run any of those tires personally, but I've done a TON of research on scale crawler tires recently. It seems like almost everyone (who has had multiple sets of tires) loves the IROK 2.2 from RC4WD over everything else. I'm just trying to talk myself in to spending $60 for a set!

ive used a set of the tsl sx's before and really like them, but im looking for something in the 5.75 flavor. it will probably be the iroks but i like the look of the others also.

Ripsaws are also good tires.What pinion are you running? I think 14t should be ok

i was running 87/15. i just changed it out to 87/13. it helped out some. i had rip raws on it stock. i ruined them trying to get them off of the stock wheels. they use a shit ton of glue.

i flipped my lower shock/link mounts last night to lower it some. im not a fan of the longer wheel base but i think ill leave it that way until i get my lowering kit. also picked which bumper i want to build. just need my buddy to hurry up and come home so i can TIG wekd it all together. i need to go pick up my VP upper and lower links also. cant wait to get rid of the bright green and plastic links. also ordered a set of universals from CKRC.

also had a question about the wraith MIP drivelines. are they longer than the standard MIP or the same length? i only have 1/4" of spline contact on mine.

i moved all the electronics to thr rear last night. need to go get me a couple more 2000-2200mah 2s to go under the hood. im thinking im going to be switching the savox out with a 7950 here pretty soon. im very un happy with the way this servo turns. it takes to long to respond and you have to be giving it gas. the 7950 turns when and where i want it to with no problems or struggle.
