Default Fans and heat sinks

Do you really think a fan works on the end bell. If your car in going 30 + MPH on the back straight and 20 MPH on the in field. I don't think the little small fan has enough power to over take the wind that is coming up from under the body. Heat sink are bad en-less you find the right one that does not cover the vent holes. Also fans take power not much but they still draw power. If I were to use a fan I would mount it on the vents facing the rear of the car pulling hot air from the motor and let the forward air from the car moving forward bring air into to the can. But that all depends on what kind off car and how the motor mount works. Stock racing is and has been all about gearing so just gear your car so your running cool after your run.

Hey does anyone have a photo they can attach (or a link to a photo) of what the heck the Team Associated "two fans and a duct thing" looks like when attached to a TC4? I know what this thing looks like in pieces, but I don't quite get how it attaches to the car and I've been curious...

The heatsink also gets hot which proves that heat is being conducted.

I hate the 3racing fan on their heatsink. What fan are you using and did it bolt right on?
