Just cut the yellow wire off...

Had the opportunity to test the new R1 fan with a 5T motor this past weekend. Ran a 3racing tornado and the R1 back to back. Both are good fans and really can't go wrong with any decent fan to be honest. However, motor temps with the R1 fan were 15 degrees cooler. Again, this is on a 5T with ambient temp of 80 degrees and track temp past 110.

Also have been using the R1 fan mount, just the ring part with the fan held on with one screw, for the past few years and never had a problem. It's just a clamping ring...what can possibly go wrong?

Was running a speed passion fan which I thought was a decent fan until it broke during a hard wreck(my fault). Bought a yeah racing fan cause the speed passions were out of stock. About the same performance. This past weekend, picked up he new R1 fan. Before installing it, was really impressed by the depth and blade pitch. It's 30x30 but twice as thick which allowed for more blade surface area and pitch. I installed it and plugged it in and all I can say is holy $hit! This is one amazing fan. I usually shroud my fans with lexan so the air can be directed though the motor vents. Any one who is in the market for a good fan. Look no further. R1 deep 30x30 is the way to go. Compact and powerful. Wires are black and already wired with receiver inputs.

I'm very impressed with the R1 fan. I did a back to back test during the qualifiers and found the R1 had outperformed the YR Tornado by 20+ degrees. Normally my Reedy 17.5 motor comes off at about 150*, tonight it got as high as 128*. The sturdy construction and impressive consistent cooling capabilities (6v rating) makes it the perfect fan for me.

What does the R1 fan mount look like? And where to get them?

Found the fan, but where is the mount?

Has anyone here run the Wurks R1 fan off the battery? I cannot find a voltage range for this fan. All I can find is a thrust at 6v.

My esc has a plug for full battery voltage that I would like to use instead of plugging into the rx.

He has mentioned that the fans can't work off of battery voltage.

Trouble with battery voltage is also that it varies with time through the race and with throttle inputs.
I do recall one racer who's fan would actually stop when on full throttle on track.

Good to know. I will make sure I plug it into my rx.

The fans no longer come with the yellow wire.

I've been using it for a little while now and it works really well. I like having it wired to the battery connection on the esc so once I plug in my battery it comes on. I can run, turn off my speedo, leave the fan going, turn marshal, and when I come back my motor will be nice and cool.

The Superior Fan is the way to go. I have not seen anything like it.
