Default esc+motor cooling

hi all,

i have the castle creations 5700kv motor fitted, and i have connected a 3 racing motor fan+heat sink to it.

is it better to have the fan sucking or blowing air? it doesnt really seem powerful enough to suck in air...

also, with the esc, can some1 post pics or send me some details to make a custom air intake for the esc.
or should i get a fan that blows air out?

thanks,

You want the air blowing directly across/towards your ESC and/or motorcan.
