    I saw an article in the new issue of RCCA showing that the company Outerwears makes a mesh bag type thing that goes over electric motors and the like. The only thing is I am not sure how well it would hold up to heat. Click it, and check it out.

    Exactly what I meant !! I think they are quite permeable about the air but they should be able to stop the big part of dirt...

    I'll look better into it, thanks about the shot !

    Those motor socks look pretty sweet, might pick me up a pair, i hope they let the heat from the motor out though, otherwise they'll act like a blanket on the motors and cause them to pre much catch on fire lol.

    They look like a good idea, but I worry about them sitting on a 150* motor, and if they would melt or not. Once someone gets one, can you do some testing with temps and let us know how it works? That would be greatly appreciated!

    Well, if you think about it they are meant for motors. So im guessing the makers of the socks probably used a material that would allow heat to escape from the motor and if it gets hot its not going to melt. Thatd be pointless to make a motor sock and have it melt lol. I just hope that its not like a blanket over the motor and traps the heat inside the motor, if thats the case then im going to have to put one of them fans Hoov has been talking about. I'm going to order some when i get time, and when they come ill do some runs and see how the socks hold up.
