Looks like "Barry's Car" has two fans. I see Barry's car all the time at Socal Raceway, it doesn't look like that one. It's most likely a handout car from AE for their factory drivers.

Sometimes that is how the takeoff tires wear. Every set you get do weird shit like that. But yea that is normal for a takeoff to do that.

Most of the AE guys are sponsored by IRS. Those were IRS dogs and IRS out drives. Just about every AE guy out there was using them. Including baker, Mike D, and Scotty E. And that was Bakers car I was with Kilruf there.

RCInfinity,
Keep in mind during the nats it was in the high 90's and 100 percent humidity. not like out in cali. Also the track averaged about 145 degrees while we were there. So it was alot hotter there than socal.

i was just wondering if this would reduce the power running to the servo and motor? i dont think the motor would loose power but would the servo possibly.

Default Fans

Hi guys

The reason Barry Baker is runing fans all of a sudden is because of the Krypton motor. With the laydown brush you generate more heat and then after a few mins the motor goes off, so by keeping it cool he can prevent it the arm from getting to hot and going off. The way i got round it over here in the UK is to mill out the hole bigger under where the motor sits and try not to run as many heat sinks so the warm air can escape. I evan use the motor clamp of the racer kit because the heat sink on that is much smaller than any of the others.

Hope this info helps!!!

TC3 RULES!!!!!

The groove in the middle of his tyre is probably where he's dremeled it. It is quite common practice over here with Take Off tyres. You will notice on a new set of tyres the is a very small ridge in the middle of the tyre, this is where the 2 halfs of the mould meet. When you first run the tyres this ridge can make the car feels very squirmy, a quick Dremel session cures this.

Yes Barry B ran 2 fans.. but Mark P only ran one. The pic of his car is posted on the Roar Nats Forum. David Jun made a nice little lexan air scoop for his mini fan. And there were some other nice air scoops out there as well. I've seen this done as asphalt and carpet. Some even point fans at their ESC! Especially if you run a Novak GT7.....
