LRP and the Nosram motor coolers are the best.

agree they are they best in the market with huge fan that really cool down your brush less motor up to 5-10 Celsius............. it's ain cheap but with the huge heat sink and huge fan does the work reducing some heat.

Ive been considering fans for my TC4 w/ MambaMax

The Nosram Heatsink & Fan seem way to large for my car and its layout. (LRP looks the same as the Nosram BTW)




Ive been checking out all the different ones Integy offers. Just not sure how good they will work?!?!?
http://www.integy.com/st_main.html?p_catid=28

Any other brands i should consider?

Yes, LRP and Nosram versions are the best I have used; but, they are very heavy.

I just have a fan mounted over my motor. It has worked just as well as any other fan/heat sink combo I have tried. Although I have not tried the one mentioned in this thread.

I have found that to get the best cooling from any fan, just cut the receiver plug off and run power straight from the battery. Most receivers operate at 5.8-6v, and a 7.2v or 7.4v source gets the fan really spinning and moves a lot more air. Plus you can turn the car and transmitter off while you marshal the next race and the motor cooling fan will continue to run, bringing the motor temp down much quicker.

I dont compete.. Just a "Parking lot/Top speed/Basher". I run a 3s, so that wouldnt really work for me. But sounds good.

Is the fan rated for so much voltage?

Some fans are only rated for a maximum voltage of e.g. 8.4V - if this is one of them (like this one for example), you may have fried it on 3S.
