btw: apologies in advance for anything above not being correct. i've known mike for a few years and just wanted to make sure the track question wasn't overlooked.

Tony, Any idea of how many milliamps those fans pull?

Not sure, but I do know that I run 2 on a switch on my car. Running those, an aggressively timed 7 turn on 3300's, I make run time, 95% of the time. The other 5% is me being a dumb-ass. You should be ok on run time.

Just finished putting in my fans. Very nice fit in the stock chassis. I will add an on/off switch for next week. They are going to work nicely.
