i'd go easy with a 12t motor in a tt01, they're not build to handle that much power.

Not sure about mounting in your car, but you ideally need a 6v fan, the wires are usually connected to the + and - of the battery. Some heatsinks like the 3racing ones come with a fan already bolted on and may be an easier way to fit a fan.
