I believe that most if not all of the Hawaiian bruddahs arrive Sunday afternoon.

Okay, anyone that is using the standard servo mounts, how do you mount your fans? Thought about the central mount, but want to use my kit as is for now. On my older model A700, I used the inside servo mount for the fan, fixing the servo with the outer and good quality servo tape. I'd rather not do this on the new kit, other options? Pics would be helpful if you could too.

I'm still trying to determine the best way myself. Behind the motor, things get too hot. I hear an L-shaped bracket in a spare hole on the motor works okay. I've got a couple of different heat sink combos on the way for some testing.

Yea, the L shaped bracket pretty much fills the same purpose as the servo mount. I'm going to keep doing that on my VTA (A700 model is becoming VTA), just want to make sure the servo mount is solid on the new kit. I have no reason to believe my servo moved running stock before, but two fixed points instead of one and tape makes me feel better at least.

I have been running I believe an integy heatsink with fan here in the 120 weather in az..with no fan or heatsink geared at 4.0 in 17.5 was right around 165 to 170, with just heatsink about 10 degrees cooler, with heatsink and 30mm ea fan, temps were down to 135 or so..now geared up to 3.6 and in middle of day hottest temp is 158..i will try to post pics in am..not cleanest look..but way better than running fan behind motor on l

I gotta take pics of my servo mount as fan mount. I'm going to have to remove my prototype fan duct as I don't know it it works yet. I made it while packing up at the track on Saturday..

Ocean- you could also use an old battery bar as a fan mount. This might be the best, but ugliest option.

Team az- hi ray - i was wonder who that was. no poker for me. Got in the way of Tequila Sunday last year

Hawaii- sounds like you have good timing..

I'm going to have to mess with a servo mount as a fan mount, that's a good idea! For now I have a old cf battery strap, cut it down, and stuck it in between my esc and motor. Seems to work well and it's pretty sturdy.

when you cut the top deck, do you cut just the little cross braces or do you cut it rest of way through to the hole where spur gear goes??

It depends on what you want to do. Lately, most of us have been running the "t-cut" topdeck where it is fully cut from the spur to the front.

I have mine cut from just behind the center mounting screw on the front bulkhead all the way back. It basically looks like a T, or two cf strips above the drive shaft. There is a drawing in this thread some pages back.
