Default Brushless Motor Cooling Fans?

Just wondering what everyones thoughts were on this subject. Does it work? Are you actually able to gear your car a little higher?

Looking to maybe ad fans on a brushless 1/10 on road. JRXS-R to be specific.

Thanks,

Thay do work but to answer your question it depends on where you race. If you race outdoors in a hot climate; (we see ambient temps in excess of 110F on summer days here alot) thay are worth their weight in gold. IF you race indoors on carpet in a temp controled area then you may not see as much benefit.

as these days batteries are cheap in amp, I would go for the thermal electric one with bigass heatsink on board.
