Default Fan mounting

I have a few questions. Where do you guys place your motor fan for cooling. Space is very hard to find on my T2, If it is not to much trouble could some one post a pic of the location of the fan so I can get a idea of where it is mounted on the car. Thanks

This is a simple fix. Buy a spare stand off for the X-ray. Take your Dremel with the sanding drum and grind one side of the mount in about half way. Now mount the fan to the stand off. Then mount the stand off to the chassis where the two holes are right behind the motor. Put the spot you ground towards the motor for better fit.

If you have to use the "back" hole for motor clearance. Then use a scrap piece of Lexan to mount the fan to and then to the stand off. So that the fan will actually sit over the motor.

Hope this helps.

Or you can hot glue it to the plastic transponder mount. I know one comes with the fk05, I'm not sure about the t2, and then mount that to the esc aiming at the endbell.

Fan for your speedo or fan for your motor...?

For motor, there are plenty of unuse room behind the motor (or next to the rear motor side stand off....shoe glue or 3M tape will work..

For speedo....my idea is a piece of carbon fiber, mount the fan (like cool cam style) and mount the other end of the CF to the side of the upper deck and blowing DOWN to the speedo...

Just some idea...
