It helps to CA the side wall when you go to big races with alot of traction or when the tire will see higher lateral loads of modified racing. You don't want to use so much glue on the side wall that you end up running on it. Just use enough to stiffen up the side wall of the tire.

if your talking about rc madness ill have to agree with you on that. i could see ca on the side wall reducing overall traction there.

Hi guys. Greetings from Malta.

I see the latest thing is cooling fans by the side of the motor.

Could someone tell me what voltage fans they are using, and what they have them hooked up to.

Regards

Joe from sunny Malta.

The fans I have seen are $10 computer cooling fans from radio shack. They are 12v I believe, but will run on our packs also. I have seen them wired to the motor leads, so that they come on with the speed controls, and wired to their own micro size switch directly to the pack itself. I understand on the very hot wind mods that they can drop temps by 20-30deg., thus keeping a hot wind cool enough to finish the round with out melting down all the solder joints. There are also motor companies (Orion) with their own mod motor/fan combos, where the fan mounts directly to the endbell.

oooooooohhhh.... look at that.... people getting interested into cooling fans on the motor... Interesting to see how now people see the light after not considering this seriously a few weeks ago

I'll try to get you the references tonight. It seems that they're not that easy to get ( adequate power/weight/consumption ratio). Orion is selling perfect ones, but I don't know the price... I got mine mounted on the car when I bought it.

Believe me, fans on the motor are the way to go.

it's thursday evening... time to go hit the track !

Later

oh yeah, mounting them on a TC3... check the pic I posted a few posts below. Basically you solder the wires on the battery wires, ESC-side. They work perfect on 7V.

oh well, I'll just post it again. here it is. you can see the fan between the motor and the edge of the chassis. You have to grind the chassis a little bit... btw, it's not my car.

I used one from my Trinity TC3 car stand.Its 5volts and does really good.Just add a connector so that it plugs into the battery on the receiver.When you switch the car on it comes on.

Fakk2 - Your setup looks good but it seems like it may push a little bit with the stiffer front springs, stock associated rear hubs and camber link locations. I wish my car had a little bit more steering... if I switched anything on my setup I would have put purple springs on the rear and tried some anti-dive in the front.

spaz456 - thanks

Dingus

those batteries look very close to the shaft. Any problems with rubbing?

You should have a better balanced car I would think

Gonna try running it soon. I tried pushing the batteries into the shaft, but it still has clearance.

Haven't tried balancing it yet, but I might have to move the transponder, feels a little right heavy now in my hands. Weather's been crappy here.

If you guys have seen a recent picture of Josh's car, that's the Radio Shack fan. It's also mounted in the slot next to the motor. He used 2 cap head screws thru the chassis & fan w/nuts on the inside. He then opened the chassis walls with holes for the air to pss thru on the lower part of the fan. Looks slick & works great. All for $10.
