Yep, All my posts are metric units unless stated otherwise. So what do i need to do? My ratios for my drive-train are 43t ring gear, 10t diff pinion with 13/50 gearing. Is this setup wrong or something? My ESC has data logging for ESC only and i get around 70C average with 90C spikes, Motor temp would be higher. Hmmmm
