Default Checkpoint motor FAN fixation

What is the part used by Team Checkpoint drivers to fix the FAN on then Chekpoint Endbell.
Here is a pic of it on Olly Jefferies car at the worlds (the red part between motor enbell and FAN)

Very good idea using the chassis standoffs, but maybe he should get the Sportwerks ones, cheap and blue. I guess whatever is handy and left over from last years project.

cammer is right any standoff will work.
I used the Tobee Pro4 front bumper standoffs on mine.

Checkpoint was stated that they will release a fan kit sometime soon.

thanks a lot, so how to do the modification?
I see how to screw the FAN on the standoff but how to screw the standoff on the endbell?

use a 25mm fan.
to mount on endbell
I used 3x10mm or 12mm grub screw.
redrill and tap the mounting plates for 3mm screw.
after motor is reassembled. insert the grub screw
with about 4mm stickout for the standoffs to
screw on to. then install the fan.

or if you have a long enough 2.5mm screw
to go all the way through the fan and standoffs.

The standoffs used by the CP team will be coming out soon. They are extremely easy to use, and as you can see from the picture, look great too.
