The thing is Yeti35, if you plug the fans into the 'R'ecieve'R', the fans will only run while you have you'R' ESC switched on, the best idea is to solde'R' the wi'R'es onto the ESC whe'R'e your cell wi'R'es 'R' attatched, that way, even when you switch you'R' ESC off, the fans will keep 'R'unning so as to cool you'R' moto'R' down while you 'R' ma'R'shling, so as to be able to wo'R'k on you'R' b'R'ushed moto'R' emediately on the 'R'

Yeti,

I soldered my leads to the pos(+) and neg(-) of the speed-control.... with a separate switch to the fans - that-way, I could keep the fans running after I switched-off the car when I went to go marshall. When I get back to my pit, I have a nice and cold motor.

You can purchase fans from most electrical shops but be aware as most of them will slow down or even stall over a motor kan that has strong magnets due to thae fact that the internal make up has a steel ball bearing inside, the fans on a CCF are of a different make up entirely, and will not stall over a kan with strong magets, you pays your monies and makes your choice.
Cheers Malc
I have a follow up question...... Do I need to run a fan setup with both "Brushless" and "Brushed" motor" ?

Thanks for the help so far.

I did the same. I did also add a connector with all three fans wired together. This way I can unbolt and unplug the fans if I need to in a pinch.

I can only get one fan on top of my BL motor due to the location of the wire tabs. I've been alternating between a clip-on heatsink and a fan to see which provides better cooling. Seems like the fan is the winner.

My backordered EA3 6 degree hubs arrived today, so I guess that means they're available now. I don't think I'll bother switching out the graphite unless they break.

I just switch my M8 off. Leave the car on. With the Spektrum everything goes to neutral when it loses the trans signal. T

Becareful in doing that. A racer here used to do that with his gas car and he couldn't figure out why he kept burning up throttle servos
