    I would tell you a 50t/15 to a 16t is for both acceleration but ive used a 50t/15t spur that was plastic last year and i had issues with the tires coming unglued quite a bit so i got sick of it and i been running a 52/16 but than again i run a 2200kv on 4s . So i would say try a 52/15 on the 2650kv and temp it after a run.

    The max is 180 degress depending on what brand motor you have but i run my around the max of 160 degress/165 after a 20 min main . But the cooler the better it also depends on how humit it is outside also. Make plently of holes in your windows on the body also .

    On a cool day my 2200kv runs at 140s the whole day.
