Sphere with a heat sink fits nicely. I found the fan rubbed the body with a GTB

Edit: that was on a BJ4WE though

I ran in 100+ heat this weekend on my GTB for the first time with this setup.



0 issues.

The new TC 2007 Sphere is about 1-1,5mm too tall with the fan on. I run it anyway although the body is slightly off synch compared to the other side. Not anything you notice on the track though.

Well it shows how you can mount a fan if not on the top.

What we found works well is a worlds edition body on the original chassis.plenty of clearance,
Plenty of air movement. 0 thermaling issues in 90 degree heat and 10 minute mains
