ya the 2 blue fans are pulling air from 2 holes we have cut on the other side of the motor box, it helps a lot to have that air coming in.

Wow,Both fans blow in you say VEGAS?
That might not be the best way to go eithier.
You should have one Blowing out.This way the air circullates.
Both blowing in will still allow the motors to run hot!

FLUX83!
You can superheat the motors when you don't have any airflow at higher volts!

It never hurts. But it probably isn't needed.

Hey, great modification on the Escalade.

I am also running 24V, but with stock motors. Are you using the stock motors too? They overheat quickly, and I'm wondering if the airflow upgrade you did was all it took to keep them running.

we do have the stock motors in it right now. But we do have EMaxx motors waiting. Just need to get heat sinks. the stock motors will work but you have to make sure they are cooled down with fans or whatever you can. we found that 80mm fans for computers fits right in the back of the box where the motors are. there is pictures and one of the videos posted has them shown.
