I'm looking to buy a motor fan and I have been seeing in the forums that most people say integy, well since looking online I see they have heatsink with dual fans and one with single.my question is does that extra fan really make a difference ?

Will do I have the ESC fan already and with this Louisiana heat I'm looking for anything to work I can't even burn out a whole battery. This is what I was looking at on eBay. http://item.mobileweb.ebay.com/viewi...d=190856536131
I bought that larger fan jtalaue mentioned. It's on it's way here. I'll see how we'll it works.
I have the dual fan that you posted the link for. Definitely helps to keep my motor cool. I recommend moving the three wires from the motor to the side and not facing the fan.
Thx for all the help so far guys.....well I went online to look for one big fan instead of two small ones and I found this, does anyone have experience with this fan/heatsink? http://item.mobileweb.ebay.com/viewi...d=390352388756
Remember you have to modify the heatsink with the large fan to fit the motor while it's mounted. I can't find the thread on it but someone made a thread on how they did it.

Castle creations blower works well

I have used hot racing fan on my old vxl system and it worked real well.........peace
Famous last words...watch this!!!!
Here is the link for the mod on the heatsink. Works really really well for me. On thing I did differently is remove the fins that block the access the motor mount screw only about 1 inch away from the end of the heatsink. The whole length of the fin does not have to be removed.

Thx for all the help guys I'm still a noob this is my first big rc. And thank you very much hirschowl for the installation guide, I will use that guide. I'm going to still browse on fans while I install the new upgrades the wife don't know about, but I think I might go with the castle creation. Oh and I got RPM a arms (Front/Rear) Traxxas aluminum shock caps (#2760) RPM shock shaft guards (80405) Traxxas blue aluminum bearing (6893X) and STRC front center drive shaft hub (ST6888B)
I forgot I have STRC 12mm aluminum blue hex adapters (ST1654B)
