Stinger Motor + 10.8 Volts + Load = Smoke

Last club race I was at, I was talking to k1e1v1i1n about how crap the stinger motors were, and how the only way to get decent speed/torque outta them was to pump up the voltage.

I threw a 9 cell (10.8 volt) custom built battery into the stampede, and drove around the track for 5 minutes to see how well the stinger motor would hold up.

SURPRISINGLY, after 5 full minutes of racing around the track, the motor didn't overheat. It was VERY HOT mind you, but it was still operating normally and wasn't smoking.

I was about to do another 5 mins with it to see if it would then overheat, but I landed a jump badly and broke a shock ending my testing for that day.

Well last night I got around to finally fixing the 'pede so I took it out back for some more 9-cell testing.

QUITE THE DIFFERENT STORY! Driving the 'pede in grass with the 9 cells overheated the motor within 2 minutes!! Smoke started appearing, so I quickly removed the battery. 10 minutes later my stinger motor was STILL too hot to touch!

So it seems the old stinger motor won't hold up to the 10.8 volts afterall (unless you're running on loose dirt with little traction and you're not putting much load on the motor)

Anyone know of any brushed motors known for handling high cell counts? The pede is so much more fun when you're pumping a lot of volts into it
