Thanks!

I'd move the fan closer to the motor to give it a little more head space to pull air. Butted up against the battery kills the efficiency of the fan to pull air.

Just got a B5M, and I'm not sure what one it is, however it did come with a shapeways 3gear Laydown trans, I did see it requires you to drill 2 extra holes in the chassis. Howeve I have not been able to find a template for the holes, does anyone have a template for it?

Take the trans and make a template from it on paper. Did this with the red's laydown trans, works perfectly. Make sure to measure every thing out twice.

This is the plan, but I thought I would ask before I do that.

You can take the trans out put it on a copier/scanner/printer and print out a copy. Then use that as a template. Or you can also use a clear folder cover ans do it that way. Hope this helps.

Do you guys really run that hot on the motor that you need to make all the adjustments and have to use a finnisher body just to run this fan for maybe 10* heat savings.
My Mach 3 even with 50* timing outside in this 75 degree humid MI weather and I never see above 125 F.

What gearing are you running?

My car would be around 165 degrees or slightly more at 50 degrees timing on a reedy mach 3, 1S short stack, 17.5, geared 69/29, weight around 1508 grams.

With the same set up, weight and gearing and just changing to a Trinity D4 1s 17.5 cert motor and timing set to 58 my temps drop to 135. I still run a fan just for extra care which gets my Trinity set up down to 115-120, but the Reedy motor at 50 timing is hot.

I agree that cooler is always better just seems like a lot of work.

But I usually run 69-72/30-31 track depending for when I run 17.5. But the Mach 3 runs much cooler than my former Mach 2's and I run stock and mod 6.5 and 7.5 all Mach 3's

Same here, Fantom FR-1, barely gets up to 130* at 50* of timing indoors around 75-80* ambient temp. Plenty of speed and torque.

There's your problem, short stack, always run hot.
