f i have a jammed pc fan i forcibly turn it till something goes snap then it works. the best way to cool a motor that i know of is to have holes drilled in the end with the brushes on, and blow air into there.

Default I am using the 3racing fan and it works fine

I have been using the 3racing fan on the heatsink and it works just fine. Clean it periodically. It doesnt need to be strong enough to move a swamp rat or create a wind tunnel; just to remove excess heat a bit more rapidly than a heatsink alone. If some of you people would gear properly, excessive heating issues wouldnt occur in the first place.

I gear to run and win, not to THERMAL!
