well I haven't got any Pics, But I made a handy little peice of equipment, I bought a 12v 80mm fan from the Local electronics shop, got a 5 litre Ice-cream container, cut out a section big enough to mount the fan, Nice and neat, bought a chrome fan guard mounted it all up, then just cut the sides out a bit, to allow good airflow and it is a multi task unit. I also have a integy car stand with a fan in it, so when I have finished a race, I sit my car on the stand, then sit the Modded Ice-cream container over it(which fits perfectly over the chassis !) and with in a very short amount of time, the motor , battery and ESC are all stone cold. By the time I'm back from marshalling, its all good.
It is good for other things, But It mainly gets used when we get a really hot day. (e.g, it is good for cooling the Spintec when we get a really hot day)
