Temps will continue to rise the more watts you shove through the motor. As you no doubt know, watts is amps multipled by volts. While a motor may not require as many amps to hit a specific RPM with a higher voltage battery, the higher voltage is still making it work that much harder, that's why power output is expressed in Watts rather than amps or volts. This is also why you noticed temps dropping with voltage drops.

Excellent setup, I'm impressed. Keeping the flash lexan at the front of the body to work as ground effects was inspired. Bravo.
