i believe you meant to say "thermal compound"

i think you might have been better off without the holes.... air is a poor conductor of heat, while aluminum is VERY efficient at conducting heat.

Maybe, maybe not... I don't know... But it seems to be working great. Finished it up today and drove it. Heatsink temp never climbed over 46 degrees Celsius. Thermal cutback doesn't occur until it reaches 80.

Thanks for the replys, it all makes sence. What controller should I upgrade to?? (bang for buck) I plan on a plum motor soon if it makes a differance.
Also, I have felt the wires suspecting an over heating problem and they are not hot. Do I need to change them and what guage should I switch them to?

Will changing the controller interfere with the stage 4 upgrade?

so this controller was hitting thermal cutoff temperatures prior?

No... not this particular car... But this is the third one we've done this way. The previous two cars had Thermal Cutback codes before this was done. After the modification, the problem ceased. This is simply the first car I've built with the IQ torque package since those two. I plan on building them all this way from now on.

I would consult with Plum Quick about what controller they recommend to use with their motor. I'd ask them about the wiring as well. And yes, if you change your controller you'll lose speed setting 4, but it doesn't matter. The PQ motor does away with programmable speed anyways.
