    Motor heatsink/fan question...

    This is a noob question, but here goes. I have a heatsink/fan for my stock motor. The fan is blowing the air down towards the heatsink, is it suppost to be blowing the air up and away? Is it going to circulate air down around the fins or pull the heat away from the fins.

    Thanks

    The fan sucks in cool air and blows it down onto the fins, cooling them. I don't think these little fans create enough airflow to suck cool air from beyond the heatsink fins and through them.

    Ok. Thats what I thought. It works good. I just ran WOT for 10 mins with a 2s up and down my dirt road and temps got to 83. ambient temp is 50ish.
