    those temps on the 70 mph run looked kinda high ,i seen 190ish brush across the screen on the gun . i wouldnt run that prop for anything other then quick speed passes then bring it in .
    my cnc x440/3 does the same thing to my bj29v3 motor .

    That run was about 3 minutes after my first all stock run and I probably ran it too hard but I wanted to see what it would get and see how it handled. The rain was coming and I didn't have time to wait, so I went ahead and ran again. The motor was already around 125-130° when I started the 70mph run. The battery connectors were pretty hot as well after this run and were in the 180° range. I watched the video again and the motor was in the mid 160° range and the ESC was like 141° it was the connectors that were hottest in the 180°+ range. 3 or 4 passes with this prop on a SAW run is perfectly fine and the temps are in the 140°-145° degree range from my test with this prop and ESC combo in my Geico and the Veles..

    Thanks Travis! It has stock EC5's I pulled the cores and re-soldered them myself. Sometimes they just don't have enough solder on them for my liking. I had one come loose on my Impulse 31 last year.

    Man I'm not trying to tell you what to do but I highly recommend moving on from the ec5 connectors. I've had a couple unsolder on me and let me tell you I dodged a bullet. Imagine that grounding out. A lipo grounding out is pretty dangerous. I use castle green 6.5mm on all my stuff and I've never looked back. I've never had one come unsoldered on me. Shorten your power wires too while your at it. If you shorten each battery wire and esc wire that's 6" of wire gone.....makes a difference. You'll pick up speed and things will run cooler.

    Thanks for the suggestion. I might just do that. I'm not a fan of the connectors nearly touching the back of the motor either as they are. I know they're causing more heat in the motor by them being as close as they are to it. I'm probably going to relocate the ESC to another location and trim the wires accordingly. I need to officially get this pulling to the right taken care of too. I about got it I noticed the stuffing tube below the boat had a right hand bow in it and wasn't perfectly straight and as low in the water it is by this boat being a little on the wet side it was causing some of this. So I removed the strut and put my tubing bender on it and got it as straight as I could without breaking the boat and it helped quite a bit but I still got to have her trimmed to the left a little more than I would like.

    Man while your at it, put 6.5mm castle or 8mm (my preference) connectors on the motor. I've went from 6.5mm to 8mm and picked up about 2mph. Just my experience and advice.
