It is not a good idea idea to have anything that attaches to the top deck, this will change the equal flex and could also cause tweaking, just use a clip on heat sink fan and mount such as the WTF or yeah racing one

^^ agreed. Bryce, that isn't ideal mate.

Just get creative with some double sided tape - my WTF fan has been held on with a 5mm*10mm piece for months. The Parma stuff sadly sells is really strong.

Don't "connect" the top and bottom decks though the fan should ideally be stuck to one or the other. Think of all the trouble manufacturers have gone to free up and centralise things like servo mounts and motor mounts - don't undo their hard work!

I just use double sided tape to hold the fan to the chassis (It's never fell off). Then made lexan top & side pieces to force the air on to the motor. I can post pics of my setup if needed.

Same here and never had any issues. I run stock and am always weight conscious!
