Default Novak GTB

Anyone know if it is possible to run two fans off the GTB ? Not having any heat issues but would like to have a fan on the fan mount on my XXX-T CR .

I've never run 2 fans off the GTB however I ran a 2nd fan from my Spektrum SR3000 Rx without any problems.
As a side note, fans mounted on the back of a XXX-T CR take a lot of abuse.

I know i had them on my old XXX-T CR but it didn`t have brushless so was easy to wire in a fan .

Is this your first time using brushless? I only run 1 fan on the gtb, this year
I will be running none but I am only running a 17.5, I also have ran a 10.5 with out a fan. The fans havea tendency to break blades, mine chunk out parts of my wiring when they went flying . Try it with out and take a temp
on it if its gear correctly you won't need if running a smaller track.

Thanks King and Mike , I planned on either splicing or using a y connector . I just didn`t know if the ESC would handle two fans but since Novak makes the harness shouldn`t be a problem .

You can gear slightly higher than normal with a fan

I tried it on a whim but didn't notice any appreciable difference in motor temps. Just didn't sit close enough to move enough air, 5-degrees maybe. They work great on speedos though.
