I found an Integy Super Heat Sink Cooling Fan made for the rally car today and was wandering what your thoughts are on it. It is a motor heatsink assembly with attached fan and BEC connector and BEC pigtail. My question is does the BEC directly get plugged into the receiver or does it hook up a different way. Does anyone have any experience with this product?
I had one on my rally before i went Big Block... it plugs directly into the battery port on the RX and runs whenever the ESC is turned on. Seemed to work good for me... looks nice too. One of the few integy parts I actually recommend.
First off I have never tried this myself. But looking at this from an engineering perspective it seems to be a horrible design all for looks (it does look pretty) and not for function. The heat sink, if you could even call it that, looks to be pretty much just a chunk of aluminum with barely an attempt to add fins to dissipate heat and then a fan not on the motor but on the new hunk of aluminum you just added. I have yet to see anything from them that I would want on my car.

does anyone have a link to this? Thanks....

thanks for the link, does that plug right into the stock 2channel RX?

Yes, it plugs into the "batt" plug on the RX and runs at all times when the ESC is turned on.
thats the exact one I am talking about. Is the wire long enough to be tucked away nicely and still go into the waterproof receiver box and does that have to be chopped up?
remember to use a thermal adhesive to transfer the heat up into the actual fan like the following.

I went ahead and ordered one this morning. I hope it does a good job!! I'm sure it can't hurt it any.
i've been running and integy one with dual fans on my slash 4x4 and so far seems to be working good. i'll get one for my rally too.
I ordered 2 of them yesterday
I just received my fan and went to install it and I think there is a problem. I plugged it into the receiver and it blows out the top rather than on the motor. Is this correct? Does it suck the heat away from the motor? I thought it was suppose to blow onto the motor. I'm confused.
the more I think about it, it kind of makes sense. The fan is going to help extract the heat from the motor.
Kind of my thoughts as well. been so cold here in MN, hard to get accurate temps, since the cold weather keeps em super low any way.
Just an update....I installed the fan this past weekend and used it on Saturday. It works amazing!! It dropped my motor temp by 20+ degrees. I highly recommend this part
I run a heatsink/fan combo from the Toyz. It has more surface contact than the Integy heatsink, and the fins are much more open to allow better air flow. I have seen pretty dramatic drops in temps since installing.
Here's a pic
just ordered mine!
if you want to change the way the fan blows just flip it over and put it back on the heat sink
I've got the same heatsink + fan from the TheToyz since yesterday. My motor was much cooler than the other rally's which had the same driving time.
drill two holes on each side of the heatsink and it will work just fine
