Default My custom fan

Hi Guy's
I thought I would post some picture's of my home make Dual Fan for Modified Motor's I Built.Because I race modified and wanted to keep me motor nice and cool. I set this up for my Orion 8 turn single.
First i bought 2 x 3 racing heat sink's, I decided to run 2 x MR fan's.
I cut one of the blue extention's in half that allow's you to have the fan over the end bell of the motor. I then bent it so i could have the second fan blowing directly onto the endbell.To get a nice clean bend I used a large drill bit and bent the end if the fan extention over it.I have both fan's blowing onto the endbell. I added a few Tamiya anodized spacer's and presto.
after a 5 minute with the old fan the lowest temp I could get was 66.9 degree's
with the new fan it after 5 minute's was 52.8 degree's.

What do you think of it.
Thanks
Addam smith

thx. is the (front) inner camber link mount at the same height of the deck on the msx/mre, higher or lower? I'm trying to modify reinhard's 05 iic setup backwards a bit. Still using standard chassis so i'll need to move the weight back like the 4mm chassis, and if there's any other things that I'm aware of I'm sure somebody will chime in.

Try Mr. Martin Crisp's setup. Also, if EJ Evans can chime in, his setup is good too.

Check my blog for a bit more information:

Not sure on the name but expect a new kit in February.

This info is coming from a what I would consider reliable source.
Now on Tamiyas website. The MSXX will be displayed at the Tamiya Fair/Tamiya Cup World Finals 18-19 November in Japan. That is the same weekend as JMRCA Nationals.

Another new car? This is a bit strange considering the MRE hasn't been out that long.

I think TRF415MSXX is to race with 4 cells.

Is it possible to use 2 standard centre pulleys untill I do the TA-05 conversion? The standard centre pulley is locked I believe and doesn't look to be any bigger than the oneway centre pulley so I should be able to fit a standard centre pulley next to the one that comes with the kit?
Or will they not fit?

you can use 2 locked pulleys.... but you need to file a flat spot on the center shaft. i had done it long ago, before the 1-piece pulley was available.

i take it you are thinking of replacing the centre one way i'm not sure without looking if they will fit but don't forget there is on two flats on the layshaft one for the spur gear mount one for one fixed pully

Thanks Guys. Easy to just file a flat spot on the shaft and wait till I need some more parts from rc_champ and order the conversion kit or fixed pulley.
