Just landing a custom made RC airplane a few times on the asphalt I caught gravel bits in the motors over time and it burned out/slowed down or made them very loud and grind-y sounding from the grit...
Just curious how to prevent that while still allowing for cooling? Perhaps you need a custom made "can" for the motors as well?

Do you have any video of them in action?

In terms of gravel/rocks/detritus getting inside the motor, would it be possible to add a small screen to the vented side?

or did you swap the bearings for bigger ones?

Pity the aussie dollar is so crap atm, the 63mm motors are $92 currently, but I have an old pair of paris and a lathe! grrrrr!
So by my calculations running 5s on 90mm wheels will put you at 47km/h or 29mph nominal. Using a max amps of 70, this makes about 1.3kw/motor. This could be a primary issue as to why you are not getting a smooth start - simply not enough power for the gearing you have. I assume a smaller wheel diameter will not leave enough thane to ride on for long?

Would you mind weighing them and telling me how much a full set of 2 trucks, 2 hub motors + wheels and 2 wheels weighs?
Also what angle of base plate are those Paris trucks using?
