Novak's are good around 150-160, I think they thermal at 170. I run my mamba around 160, don't go over 170. If your running at 140 your safe to go up one tooth on the pinion, just recheck your temp after 5 minutes. Don't forget to check the temp of the esc as well, try to keep it under 180 for the mamba.

A tech at Castle told me the motors are good upto 200F, any higher will cause damage. The esc should be good upto 265F without thermalling.

You really don't want to exceed 180F because it will damage the magnets in the motors.... I'd worry more about the ESC than the motors though... All the times I've been using brushless, I've only managed to kill one motor... 110, 000rpms... lasted about 5 minutes and the magnets turned to sand..
