    Question fan build??

    i was walkin with my son today when we past some a PVC pipe my son picked up and was playing with it. i took it from him and notices it was a cooling fan for some type of electrical box i brought it home.
    so now how can i mount this to my rusty to keep the battery and ESC cool. i looked up the fan and its for extreme weather conditions.


    i have a battery and an on/off switch from a plan i crashed a few months ago



    i wanna mount it like this



    any suggestions on how i could do this or is this just a dumb idea?

    thanks

    ok before you see the video i am VERY BORED!! and on vacation. i had some time on my hands.

    i had a old gray chassis and upper deck i used to make the mount. this was fun makin it. i need to glue the fan in place and fix the wires but its almost done. with some modification to the body it fits and really works. i have some more parts on order for my ultimate rustler build i need before i drive it. mainly the TQI because last time i drove it took off and i had to chase it down... but yeah heres a video i made of it.

    I can't hear the audio very well, but the idea looks sound. I think if you switched to lipo a lot of your heat problems would go away; lipo's just don't generate heat like nimh's do.
