I really appreciate the helpful comments, I have an etoxx gear drive, so no belts. I have been in contact with APS, on my previous setup I had Vesc 6 and APS 6384s 200kv. I blew a Vesc 6 up last month and ordered two new Vesc 6+ along with two APS 6384s 170kv motors. The new 170kv motors have a completely closed bell while my old ones had a vented bell. I thought this might be a factor but APS assures me that the enclosed bell should be okay. I am losing power when the motors get hot, Vesc’s are throwing a motor temp fault. The weather here is mild for now(Arizona) it’s a high of about 80-85F here currently. My riding style isn’t super aggressive but I definitely enjoy accelerating hard out of some corners🤘. APS said it was likely due to my geartrain (which I don’t think because it ran fine before) or timing(which I assume means Vesc settings?) I have also emailed trampa, awaiting a reply.
I am currently using the same motor min and max as well as batt min and max that I used on my 200kv that ran flawlessly never overheating for the past year. Even when it was 110F+ outside. Also my friend has the exact same setup running the 170kv motors only difference is he is using focbox.
It just doesn’t make just sense to me, it takes about a mile or two to reach the temp limit then severely cuts power to protect motors.
