How hot can the motor get and still be safe .I have a digital gauge which shows 70`c after about 15 mins use.

I will have to look it up later to be 100% but off the top of my head I'm sure that above 70°C the POD will cut off the motor.  I'm surprised it gets that hot after only 15 minutes, I guess the terrain is a bit hilly where you're using it?

The hottest one of my motors got without any permanent damage was just over 100 degrees cent after running on 36v, but I think I was pretty lucky and certainly wouldn't recommend any temp above 80 at the max, this is only by my experience of course. kamztrad
