Get the Much more endbell fan screws and then search the web for 30mm fans, alot cheaper than most of the options and alot more affective too !

you hadn't said that, in this case they will not fit at all. Buy a 40mm fan and strap it to your chassis.

the heatsinks for 540 motors might work... there's a version where the fan mount is offset to go above the endbell and not the can.

here's one from 3 racing. I'm using the same one but i chucked the stock fan out the window (they're crappy and can hardly blow any air). replaced it with a novak 30mm fan which recently broke in a crash. looking to get my hands on a MM 30mm fan to replace it.



come to think of it, why would you need a fan if you're running a stock johnson motor? if the motors coming off really hot i doubt a fan will help. might be better to check out your gearing and/or roll-out numbers.

I think they do, but as shift said I think they need the 25mm fan, much more do both but are pricey, that's why I got direct to the net and find some good Computer websites that stock board and cpu fans, they go from 17mm up to 30mm, from .7cm to 1cm thick. I opt for the 1cm thick so they can handle a whack from another car better.
