but emu already stated that the x-speed motor get hot even 7.23 gear ratio and there is no tight gear on the chassis. so there anybody know how to reduce the heat of the x-speed motor ?

I drilled a hole in the endbell, just over where the comm is. I use it to put comm lube. My motor gets hot, but not to the point that it is too hot. It allows the hot air to escape a bit as well. I recommend using a hand drill, as you dont want particles or the drill to hit the comm. This can be done with the motor installed in the car.

You would want to drill the hole in the location that you see in the upper left picture. It allows you to lubricate the comm and rear bushing without removing the motor. You can lubricate the other bushing in the front already without removing the motor.

You might try polishing the bushings, Spray out the motor with some contact cleaner and clean the comm with 1500 wet/dry. Heatsinks will help dissipate the heat. I've seen on this forum some people rotating the 2.4ghz board 180 degrees which leaves an opening above the motor to help cool the motor. In the end I don't think anything will help much. Kyosho motors seem to all run hotter than most. I really don't understand why. Atomic AWD013 AWD Ball Bearing Stock Motor is a good, inexpensive motor you might want to try.

The ATM Stock BB motor is one of my favorite AWD motors. It runs cool, and can be fast with a high gear ratio.
