The fan DEFINATELY makes a difference. Have tried it several times, temp w/o a fan over 200, temp with a fan under 150. Motor doesn't fade, brushes last longer. I mounted a fan on my nerf wings, aimed at the motor.

I've got some brackets that mount to the motor clamp....i can blow the fan air directly onto the arm, and yeah, it seems to help. I'll try to post some pics of the bracket.

The heatsink/fan looks nice, but also looks like it would raise the center of gravity, IMHO.

You might be able to use oven cleaner to take the anodizing off though for a silver finish...I don't know though.

I did the fan trick just as Barry Baker did I believe. Mounted by the ESC blowing directly on the endbell. HUGE DIFFERENCE!!! Can't say that enough. Mods rarely reach 140. After 7minute 19t races, motor temps at 120. AWESOME!!

I connected it to the battery input at the esc, you also can plug it into ch3 of the receiver. You will get more rpm if it is conn to the batt.

I recently got a tc3 team kit, and it has a graphite chassis and some other parts.

My question is that I want to get the version 2 arms for it with the droopscrews as the car I have does not have these arms?

I am wondering if they will work on my chassis? To me it does not look like the droop screws would touch the chassis?

the second gen chassis are differnt. they have little ears on the side where the droop screws will hit on the new arms You really should update. you will not be able to get the car to hook up right. Droop plays a big part...

hope this helps!
