I usually get 10th scale fans from a local electronics store. The guy charges $4.50 per fan for a 25mm. One of three died after a full winter indoor season. The other two lasted the following season, but then I got new ESC's which came with fans.

Minor tip on fans and wires, glue the wires to the fan with ca so they don't break off the circuit board, then you have a bit you can usually chisel and attach a new wire too.

Thanks QDRHRSE!

I did some searching and reading after asking about the inline setup earlier. I think my track is probably one of the best fits for an inline battery that you will find so I decided to go for it this afternoon. Here's what I ended up with.

I really like how much it cleaned up the wiring. I could have shoehorned everything in there without cutting all three cross braces but I wanted some room between the battery and the ESC/servo so I hacked them all.

I notched my stock battery hold-down to clear the bullet connectors. That should get me through the race this weekend but I plan to find a CF brace that fits better.

I have a suggestion for page one. When I got my swaybar kit I tried searching for how to install it before I opened the package. It was hard to find anything. Once I opened the package it was easy to figure out but it could be helpful to have a note about it. Below are pictures from couple different angles. If they aren't clear enough I can get out the real camera instead of using my iPhone.

What gearing are you guys running that needs a fan on the motor?

Very tall for a 17.5.

32x69 with 60 degrees of timing. Coming off right now about 125.

I dont run a fan because I "need", I run a fan because it is insurance. Less power fade with a cooler motor and longer motor life. I gear my motors for about 150 without a fan, then add a fan to drop temps to 125. this way if my fan fails, I wont fry the motor. last weekend my fan failed and I came off at 150.

Also, we run 5 minute quals and 8-10 minute mains. 150 over 5 minutes becomes 170+ over 8 minutes. Most everyone here is running fans in 17.5. I would not bother in mod.
