Mounted a fan in my d413 today, Got a big race coming up this weekend and i might need to squeeze more out of my 10.5 setup. I mounted it with one screw right to the motor plate mount. Its rock solid. Hopefully the non factory bodies allow more room to move the fan over in the future. Here are a few pics.

You will have to dremel down the steering post in order to get the clearance for the motor to fit. It's currently the only option for running it with saddle packs with most all the motors.

It's funny the only motor found that fit in saddle pack config are made by HB. Better to go shorty setup anyway, car handles so much nicer

Youve tried both set ups? Please explain. I would think saddle packs add more balance in the chassis. Please sell me on why I should reconfigure and buy new batteries? Im ready to take my new servo out and sell it.

Im running saddles, with LRP motor, it fits in , just, I had to take note of the sensor plug, as it was hitting the steering post, but once on the correct angle, all is good
