Default I use a heatsink w/fan

I use a heatsink w/fan that has the fan directly over the sink by 3racing. That puppy works like a dream. Running the 4.5, my motor has never seen a hair above 130 degrees. Running Li-Po, I have run 20 minute races with nitros and the motor never gave me a problem. I have tested it without the fan, and that was the only time the temps shot up to the 140's. By brushless standards, that is about average. So, I must give the big thumbs up to fans on the heatsink.

I don't think you will be able to use a heatsink and fan on the FK04 because of the bulkhead running over the motor (there is no way of mounting the heatsink to the motor). This is why I upgraded my Evo2 to a FK05 because it gets extremely hot in summer where I race and there was no way (apart from mounting a fan direct to the chassis) to artificially cool the motor.

I'm using this mount and am VERY pleased with it. It puts the one fan at an angle into the endbell/comm and the other pulling hot air out of the can.

Team Tamale , just click on "clamp on fan mount"

Is anyone you know of stock this fan or did you order it directly from them? That looks really trick.

yeah i dont think your going to be able to mount a fan on the 540 motor with the fk04 unless you try and put some wholes on the endbell , then tap it which it might hold the fan on the end

that car is just like the tamiya ta04 there is no room at all except the endbell option

Directly from Team Tamale. I don't think he can make them fast enough to try to stock another shop other than his own.

Teamtamale used to make a mount for the FK04 that clamped to the bulkhead above the endbell and was angled toward endbell.

As this guy is asking for one to fit his FK04 that houses a silver can, our kit WILL fit and do the job that he is after, and will look the part to.

I have a Topcad fan and heatsink to mount on my electric motor but am not sure where to plug this in. I am assuming that it plugs into one of the receiver ports but the wires are not long enough to reach. Any advice would be appreciated.
