Hello ECX family,

So I recently took the truck for a run with some friends and family. It was great! Great potential for long run times, but the motor was very hot to the touch so I took it easy. I let it sit from time to time in the shade to let it cool off a bit.

We are exploring our options of adding a heatsink and a fan to the motor with a separate battery and switch. I'm curious to see if any of you have added a fan and/or heatsink to the motor of the torment. I am also looking for ideas on where to open holes in the torment body for the best ventilation that doesn't weaken the body of the vehicle.

The truck is running on 2S Lipo. I have a brushless 3900kv motor and esc (https://www.ebay.com/itm/3929642919...MInZ_0vZvX8gIVdW1vBB303QA9EAQYGSABEgJwUvD_BwE) with a steering servo from a gas-powered Traxxas Revo.

I thank you in advance for your time and assistance.

Do you have the 1/10th scale or the 1/18th? I have a 1/18th scale with a hobbywing 7800kv motor and 18 amp esc. I just hit a new personal best mph last night...46mph with more to come, I had to let off. How fast is yours? I am also looking for a new body for mine as well...the stock torment body is like a damn parachute haha

I have a 1/10th scale. That's pretty fast! I don't have a GPS or anything but I would guess around 30ish. I get smoked by the Revo, Tmaxx and Aarma vehicles but this thing retailed at half of the price (if not less) of those trucks so I'm okay with that. I'm just trying to keep it as cool as possible so I can take advantage of the potentially long run times.

i clocked my 1/10 scale doing 63 mph on a radar. im running a 4000kv 70 amp brushless setup on 2s 5200 mah lipos
That is impressive! How reliable is your truck? Have you upgraded to metal gears or are you still running the originals?
