I don't know much about motors yet, but I just finished my first FCG over the weekend. I was testing it, and after a couple minutes, the motor suddenly stopped. I'm using the Rex Engineering motor from Monster Guts (their replacement for the Dayton). The wiring and the outlet looked ok, but the motor was pretty hot (but not burning hot). I was afraid I had fried it already, but I let it sit for 10 minutes, then plugged it in again, and it worked. So, I assume these motors must have auto shut off if they get too hot. Then I remembered that I hadn't mounted the little fan that came with the motor. That little fan really blows some air, hopefully that will keep it cool enough.

Hopefully someone with more experience with these motors can let us know how hot they normally get.

Oh yeah, can we see the video of the Flying Crack Ghost??
