    190 would be max on just about any ESC/motor, just a good safe rule. I had a lot of headaches keeping mine cool, no matter the gearing. The VXL just simply runs hot, then tends to crap out in little time

    I wouldn't run longer then 10 min with stock esc/motor at 11.1 v ... 11.1 6000mah is good for around 30 mins give or take and would be overheating after about 10 mins. Mine would hit 170 jus after a few speed runs at 11.1v....
