Thanks in advance.
definately blow the air towards the motor. Applications that require a fan to blow air away from the object are usually sealed devices that require a "vacuum" in order to introduce colder, higher pressure air into the low pressure area. This isn't the case in an Rc car where motor components and areas arn't neccesarily sealed, therefore the colder air can be introduced by means of air passing over the heated object, not by means of a vacuum to introduce higher pressure air into a specified area.
sorry if this didn't make much sense, i typed it fairly quick.
