Fan wiring

Hello there,
Just got my SD last week and i went through some thread that peoples are putting a fan to the motor. I have done the 90 degree servo rotation and gain some clearance for a fan.

Can u guys guide me how to do the wiring for the fan?
What kind of fan is good? their rating?

I plan to get a CPU fan but not sure whether it will works.

Any comments will be appreciated. Thanks.

I bought a Yokomo motor fan, but it was 12V, so I wired it directly on the battery instead of the RX

if you get a 12v fan it's better to hook it up to the battery, if you get a 5 volt fan then you can plug it into the receiver "battery" slot

5V will be much better
for me the 12V is just OK, the motor stays cool .

Hi guys. Greetings from Malta.

COYA DALE.

You asked what bodies I use. Well both my son Josh (TC3) and I have run the new Protoform Stratus 2 throughout our local championship.

I think it's a fairly neutral shell which works well on most tracks. We like it.

In UK however the Stratus 2 is not homologated so we will have to revert to other shells. In fact I am presently preparing a Stratus 1, Vauxhall Vectra and Alfa 156 each for myself and Josh.

The Vectra seems very popular in England, and the Alfa has loads of steering, which comes in useful if the car starts to understeer and you don't have time to play.

I haven't been down to the track since Tuesday but plan a trip down tomorrow. Want to try the rear tower up front.

Regards

Joe from sunny Malta.

my personnal reason was
it's my first yoke
1-way issue with the E3
simple design (looks good too), a lot of parts are symetrical.
cheaper
it s just not really fair to release a new version 6 month after (which is far more expensive) and to stop the prod. of the first one .yokomo released a lot of version of the MR4 TC but each time sold conversion kits for each version
