Default Custom Dual Fan on my TRF415MSX

Hi Guy's
I thought I would post some picture's of my home make Dual Fan for Modified Motor's I Built.
First i bought 2 x 3 racing heat sink's, I decided to run 2 x MR fan's.
I cut one of the blue extention's in half that allow's you to have the fan over the end bell of the motor. I then bent it so i could have the second fan blowing directly onto the endbell.To get a nice clean bend I used a large drill bit and bent the end if the fan extention over it.I have both fan's blowing onto the endbell. I added a few Tamiya anodized spacer's and presto.
after a 5 minute with the old fan the lowest temp I could get was 66.9 degree's
with the new fan it after 5 minute's was 52.8 degree's.

What do you think of it.
Thanks
Addam smith

Looks good. But turn the fans around to pull the heat from the motor. That will be much more efficient.

Do not give him any info! He does not need any fans. He is fast enough.

Hey Guy's
I think the Cool Can Fan is the best of the best as far as fan's go.Fellow Aussie Crabboy you say "it looks like the Cool can fan nothing new".
I totally think it look's nothing like the Cool can Fan.
What do you guy's think.( see pic's bellow)
I think not only the cool can fan is one of the best, crash proof and most efficent fan there is.I have just ordered one. My one is probally going to get destroyed after my mate see this on R/C Tech and take out my Left side of my car entering the first corner at our track HA HA.
I also think the Cool can is worth every cent because of it's design.
Thanks
Addam

Here is my set up:


All I did to connect the two fans was zip-tie them together .

1fastdude, Team MuchMore offers some very nice high power 30mm fans...here is a link to them on our site:
