Default YGE 60A, stretch and heat

Yesterday I tried the YGE 60A in the stretch (I had the 80A, but I will need it for the new EDF).
With an ambient temperature of around 30C and a flat TH of around 70%, (4.5 min flight), the ESC came down very hot, something I wasn't used to.

For those who have the stretch and the 60A ESC, is this normal?

I use the YGE 60a in my stretch on vbar with stock stretch pinion at 80% throttle. I get 5min on Gens Ace 3300. Temps seem normal around 115-120 f in summer. No problems that I can report. I use a 3s portable fan to cool motor and esc between flights.
