    heatsink = worth the xtra cooling?

    hi,.. adding one of these:

    on the VXL motor
    is it worth the extra cooling,
    or
    will this became just a place for dirt to colect

    and the fan coolers are there any waterproof?

    wow... nice heat sink. I was just thinking, they work great, but you gotts notch them, and make them fit... this one appears to be made for the Slash already.

    I cut up a ******* one, it really helps.




    Of course it depends on who you ask, the guys who spent money on an aluminum transmission are going to tell you to get one of those...

    Ya when you look at the size of a heatsink compared to a full trans case, the aluminum case will obviously make a larger difference. However you can usually find heat sinks for cheapish, so take your pic (or choose both )
