which motor heat sink do you guys use?
i'm looking for one that has more contact with my 380 size motor.
thanks in advance!
Drive. Crash. Fix. Repeat.
i'm not too sure about the traxxas one, it doesn't seem to have much contact around the sides of the motor
I use the Traxxas heat sink. It lowered my motor temps by about 10º which is as much as I have ever seen a clip on heat sink lower temps.

my traxxas heat sink works well too. just used the thermal paste they gave with it and made sure it was spread all over. i dont really see why anyone wouldnt want to use it. unless you wanted one with a fan in which case i heard that the toyz makes a nice one that is supposed to work well.
Does anyone recommend one of the fan cooled ones? I would love to get one of those
like i said in my previous post. the most popular fan cooled is the toyz
I wish I bought one with the fan ... I have traxxas one from above link and need to figure out how to mount a fan to it now ... It is fine and looks good, but better cooling need better airflow!
i ended up buying a this one. from the curve, it looks like it will be covering at least 50% of the motor.
it cost only $6 shipped to my door from Hong Kong so it will won't be much of a loss if it isn't as good as a trx one (especially compared to the price the national traxxas supply has [click here]), and the fact that it is aesthetically pleasing is just a bonus.
