I'm interested in fan setup also, I believe I have enough room to mount a fan but am really looking to find a low profile heat sink and fan combo to mount on the motor, not the chassis to cool and displace as much heat as possible, just not sure if anyone is running this type of setup and which brand fits and works best.

I run a small Much More fan sitting on the right of the spur gear as it circulates the air under the body well. Drawing air from my esc which is right in front of the fan.

I've never run a 4-pole motor as I've never run an SCT but I've run Orion 5.5, reedy 6.5 and now a hobbywing 5.5 and run a 21 tooth pinion on the stock spur and it's fast! My motor temps tend to be high no matter what I do so I just keep a spare motor with me just in case but have never needed it. The fan under the drive shaft pulls fresh air over my ESC and over my
Motor so every little bit counts.

Better safe than sorry.
I've never understood the whole putting a fan on the motor thing. I know I'll get grief for even saying anything but, if your motor is geared right, you shouldn't need holes in the body or extra fans.

I run a 6.5t with ZERO timing in the can or ESC and no holes drilled in the body and after a 10+ minute run the motor and ESC are just barely warm. I drive it hard too. If your motor/ESC is getting hot than something isn't right.

CJ, you'll develop more heat once you get on a higher grip surface. That could be where the disconnect is. I don't normally run a fan on my 10th scale stuff except 4wd buggy. I usually try to get it dialed in first without it, but then will add one later if needed.

Vent holes are absolutely needed front and back on any 4wd buggy. They help cool down everything, not just the motor.

Some motors run WAY hotter than others. I ran a 7.5T next-generation 'brand-X' motor last fall. It ran 20-30 degrees hotter than the previous generation brand-X motor. I could not keep it cool enough. So I mounted a FAN on it with an LRP 82515 braket. Worked a charm. Gave me confidence if I needed to get a little heavy on the throttle it would go into a Chernobyl meltdown...

Servo need: looking for some advise on a good servo to run in my DEXV4. any suggestions would be appreciated. Looking for smooth, quiet, reliable servo that has enough torque and speed.

Thanks

Geared right? There are few options here. I ran an Orion VST 5.5 and I could literally BURN eggs on it it ran so hot, My Reedy was only a hair cooler and my Hobbywing 5.5 runs quite hot as well. I run a 21/87 which is pretty much what most people run on a 410 and I also run ZERO timing. And none of those motors are junk. I also ran Speed Passion Motors as well as my Team Powers Plutonium 17.5 and even that one builds temperature.

I suggest you try running here in South Florida and see how cool your stuff runs then. I will guarantee you it won't be mildly warm to the touch. Even the top guys here run into heat issues and I've seen more than a handful of them Running Tekin RX8's get so hot the poles unsoldered right off of the ESC.

In the winter time here when it's in the 50's our cars will run the way you describe but the rest of the time it's hot and the cars run hot as well.
