    Which motor fan to get for the Pede 4x4 VXL?

    Hey guys,
    I just tried out a 17t pinion gear (everything else stock) and ran the Pede with a 3S LiPo and DANG is it fast.

    I've seen a couple different options for motor fans and was wondering which motor heatsink/fan y'all would recommend?

    (As an aside, I have a Rustler VXL with high gearing running on the same battery and the stampede is about twice as fast, which is weird to me)

    Thanks!

    I've got a HR one, seems to do the job. from what i can gather they are much of a muchness and don't make a HUGE difference. Temp gun will help to monitor. Airflow helps keep things cool - but no substitute for correct gearing.

    I hope you're running this setup in very short bursts and monitoring your temps. I saw 195F with 2s lipo, 11t pinion, and proline trenchers (on dirt surface).

    Thanks guys!

    @baylorar: Yeah I've just done a couple of speed runs and I monitor the motor temp. Does get up to the 150's, 195 is insane!!
