unfortunately, those of us with 12th scales don't have any room for motor fans
But you might have room for a ESC fan with brushless
. I run the LRP in my RugRat, and it seems to be perfect on all tracks. The bottom end grunt isn't really a problem. On big tracks you don't need it, and on small tracks you just pick the right gearing. Top speed kinda isn't an issue, as it revs to the sky. On long tracks with sharp corners, it won't be that easy though...
