    Thanks, if someone has used a fan version, that would be nice to see as well.

    One of the guys at the local bashing spot had a fan/heatsink on his Slash 4x4. Sorry, no pictures. He said it was Integy and $15 so I assume it is this one http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXNDP1&P=7 It looked like that one. It fit well and it definitely kept the motor cool. I asked if he had to do any modifications to get it to fit. He said he had to rotate the motor 180 degrees so the motor wires came off towards the center of the car instead of the outside.

    They are similar, but definitely not the same. Take a look at the Integy part number and dimensions.

    Personally I'm done with fans. I have had 3 on my ESC's and they all died.
