I cant see a fan that sucks hot air out work any better than a fan blowing air onto it.

You can get passive heatsinks (no fan) for computer CPU's and chipsets, try finding a 'fan only' design......you won't

Posting on behalf of a friend of mine, any ideas how to mount twin cooling fans for the motor? I personally do not own a TA05 chassis and therefore appreciates any ideas on this matter... The more the merrier as the saying goes...

Oh and it would be best with pictures for examples too...

The LRP/Nosram heat sink is the best and has a larger 30mm fan.
I put some heat transfer paste inbetween the brushless motor and my heatsink.
