Ill have to look closer at it, it didn't look like ther was, but there may be, I know it would clean it up alot more. Thanks!

I did it on mine, it was a tight fit with the small wires coming out of the fan. I poked it through one of the small holes on the motor mount.

Why not put the fan on the underside of the fan mount? Lower CG and closer to the motor. Mine fits with a fat-ass Yeah Racing fan with 96/48 gears with a couple mm to spare.

I will have to mess around with it once I get it all hooked up. The issue with running it under the mount is then you have to add longer screws and nuts so it is somewhat offset. With the 25mm fan I tried under was fine because the screws went directly into the plastic.

or I guess I could just screw it in backwards. duh.

Seems so. If you're rich, get a ThunderPower and then swap out its rotor for a blue one.

When people can be bothered to send me their info, I update big race equipment on rcprogear.com. Lately, most people are mute. I'm sure the companies that sponsor them must be so proud.

For other cars:

I'm not sure if they ship internationally or not. You can ask in this thread: Reflex Suspension Dynamics (RSD) TC6 Upgrades (vertical ball studs, pistons,etc)
