If you like to try one, see me at the next MSRA electric race at Hobbytown (I'm the one with the red #3 Mini). I'll let you try a "Doc" prepared Red Dot motor.
From my dyno I show an increase of about 3-4,000 rpm with a prepared zapped motor. I have been using the same motor for about 4 months now without a decrease in performance.
And this is not an illegal mod as the motor is not taken apart.
PM me if you need more info.
OH NOW I KNOW WHO YOU ARE THE GUY WITH THE FAST RED MINI....WELL I WAS TRYING TO BE SNEAKY AND GET SOMETHING FASTER WITHOUT EVERYONE KNOWING, BUT I GUESS THE SECRETS OUT....

I'm from Europe and I have never seen any product called ShooGoo over here. I guess it is a kind of adhesive? Could someone explain me the properties of this kind of (glue?)
thx.

It's just a clear silicone adhesive. It's called shoegoo or shoogoo because baseball pitchers would coat the toe of their right shoe (for right handers, left shoe for lefties) with it. They drag their toe on the follow through and wear out the toes. It makes a wonderful flexible adhesive for various parts.

It's a silicone adhesive. Any silicone adhesive can be used to attach the fans. However, if you are into neat looking brackets, 3Racing makes a good one that's simple to install. I've used both methods. If you are going to use the silicone adhesive method, suggest you use the 25 mm fan.
