I only launch with Estes A-B-C motors. And I have yet to see any baffle that long. So, I am guessing they will all burn out eventually.

The baffle does not need to be 8" long. It only needs to be 8+" away to not be in contact with any flame.
For example, the baffle on my Semroc Explorer is about 10" away from the top of the motor.

If it is in contact with flame, yes, eventually the tube and baffle will get torched.
