Dynamite Temperature Recording System

One of the biggest killers of RC components is heat. An overheating motor, ESC or battery can cause major failure or even result in your car catching on fire. I’ve seen both events hap- pen and, up until now, there’s not been an inexpensive way to monitor heat build-up in a vehicle.
