  1. Yes, heat bad. But not that bad. If you’re overheating the motor, then you obviously need to cool it better. If you’re looking for better efficiency, cooling will only buy you so much. I estimate it’s around 10% efficiency gain or less, depending on the difference between the temperatures with poor vs good cooling.
