Wow i love how the ignorant people jump on here and say something will not work when they have neither thought about it or attempted it, i have been running fans on most of my cars for the last year, and they make a tremendous difference, especially those little 5v ones, and yes 3CFM is a ton of air esp when directed to the brushes.

Try it before you bag it.

This fan mod does work and it is a 5 volt fan from a computer graphics card. It lowered my motor temp by 20 degrees from one run with out it, and one run with it. same gearing, motor, battery,track, car. I placed it over the air holes of the monster stock and the endbell for brush cooling. I do not use a heatsink as it actually makes the motor hotter by covering the air holes.
The fan is a 3d computer graphics card fan. 5 volts. I hook it onto my motor so it spins when the motor gets throttle.

well what actually happened, was that i had it mounted in there so tight and the fan is a brushless that it popped out of its casing. It just needs a top mold to sustain shock. Its not too bad other than that. I'm looking for another style of fan to possibly replace this one, but these are so cheap it doesnt matter.

Im not being ignorant, i was debating what is a valid topic, and in my opinion a 3cfm wouldnt make any difference.
Today i realised that as its in degrees F, 20F isnt such a difference compared to 20C. I did think about it and provided an example which is a similar application in a computer, which is where the 5V fans are taken from

20F is subzero

20C is above zero

Big Difference.

I was meaning, when converted, 20C is a bigger difference compared to 20F. ie, between 180 and 200F and 80 and 100C.

you misunderstood fatdoggy... he was saying that a difference of 20 degrees F, is not as big a difference as 20 degrees C.

I other words, a change of temp by 20 deg.C, is a bigger difference then 20 deg.F
