Where would you get dry ice? I bet it would make pretty sick looking drifts if you straped it to the back of the chassis.

The guys that push the little carts down the street selling icecicles use it to keep everything from melting. What are the chances of finding one just before a raceday? Let alone them selling you a piece.

You can make dry ice bombs. I'm not saying how, as I might get sued.

You will also need a really good fan. Remember the bigger the heatsink and the more air you move over it, the cooler the motor. This also increase's the price. It starts making the pre-made coolers seem like a good deal. But, if you just want the fun of making it, go ahead.

For years we have simply used compressed air cans tilted upside down. ITs a quick freeze and keeps the motor cooler longer into the run. The longer it stays cool the better. But cans of air can add up.. One of these new koolers sound great

Can you drill hole on the peltier chip to your clamp in place. Or this will damage the device?

re. dry ice for motor cooling, there used to be a clip on heatsink with a small resealable compartment that you can put a small chip of ice in, or a small rag soaked in very cold water last time i saw one was about ten years ago, mounted on a TA02 driven by my old rc buddy maybe our CNC machinists now can design something similar, but complete with fan mount
