Nice! But you eat the fan to suck air out not blow in

It's set to blow cool air from the left wheel onto and thru the motor. Almost all of the drivers at the IFMAR Worlds had this setup.

I've been running a similar setup on my TC6.1 and it works like a champ. It never made sense to me to have the fan up high like the Reflex mount, where the fan would have to fight against airflow under the body to get cooling air onto the motor. The duct just makes more sense.

It's seriously the way to go, even without a shroud of any type, a good fan blowing on the motor makes a huge difference in heat levels, and seems as effective as just about any heat sink you can buy.

Default A700

I changed to a new narrower chassis so I took the opportunity to re-arrange my electronics layout. Think this is a bit better.
