Default LRP Shpere Competition TC Spec on off froad cars??

Do you think it would be bad to use the TC spec on off road cars? It has teh fan already so what do you guys think?

You wont need the fan unless you plan on running motors below 6.5. The Fan doesnt fit very well in many off road cars.

Works great and fits just fine with the fan. And runs super cool.

I run it in a BJ4 with the fan and a 5.5 and also in an RB5 without the fan and a 6.5. Performs perfect in both vehicles with no issues whatsoever!

I've only heard stellar things about the "TC" spec Sphere....I have a "Comp07" right now in my B4...but if a TC came along for the right price...I've seriously thought about picking one up for my B4

the only reason you would need a heatsink, or a fan on your esc is if youre racing outdoors in like 90+ degree weather...

just my $0.02

mine came with a heat sink and fan....i took it all off because it added weight and bulk to the chassis. we'll see...if one came along at the right price and I were able to sell my current one...then ya never know, but i'm in no hurry to get a new ESC...I love mine.
