Imagine a piece of lexan rear wing, re modelled to create an air duct which directs the air straight onto your motor vents. Same pricnicple as a formula 1 cars sidepod raidiators. It works much better than a fan or heatsink and it weighs less too!

they cost $6 which is nice and cheap for something that works great!

I played around with the Reedy heatsink/fan last thursday, and it made a little difference in motor temp, ~ 5-7 degrees cooler than without it.

However, the Ice Cube trick still is the best way to keep your motor cool, especially with the Summer coming up.

nice, but are they sold separately and you have to like glue them. Or they are sold 4-in-1?

Looks like 4 to me, i might be wrong.

Looks like 2 fans?? anyways they look to be the perfect size.. but as far as keeping the motor cool I have had great luck with the Ride cooling tunnel it made some of my 23T stockers go from 85deg Cels to 76ish after a 8 min race and trust me in a ( min race you need all of the last min power you can get ...you don`t need your motors magnets going to `Dog Squeeze` at the last moment

Default Ice Cube Question

OK, I don't have an issue with motor heat, but I do know that it is a fact that a cooler motor runs faster....especially in stock. As far as using an Ice-Cube, I just don't see it yet. Can I literally lay an cube directly on the motor can 10 or so minutes before my race? Is there an aparatus that I need to make to hold the cube, or just lean it up against the motor plate? I'm running a XXX and XXXT so I've got lost of room to put a cube down.

Could someone ease my mind on how the "cube-trick" is done?

Thanks!

get an ice cube, Put a glove on or paper and hold the Cube. Touch the motor from underneath the chassis with the ice cube and hold it there rubbing it. People also Like to bring little freezers for beer, Soda, and Like to stick it in there with the ICE. On your way to the track from pits just keep holding the ice there until last min and Go RACE!

How long does it need? (obviously not too long or it will completely melt.)

just grab a couple Ice, Or what you cna do go to walgreens, wal-mart Etc and Get an ICE pack. Put in the Freazer the day before. At race day take out put in a cooler with ice. 5-10min before race get the ice pack and hold under the car As long as you can. The ICE pack wont Melt and Stay Cold real Long. Hope this helps

Put that ice pack under a fan, blowing away from it and instant cold air.

You can take the ice cude and put it directly on the motor 5-10 min before the race. Then take some motor spray and clean out the motor. You can also stick your motors in sandwich bags and stick them in a freezer or cooler. Then take them out before the race. I've also taken the cans of compressed air, turned them upside down, and spray the motor right before the race. Beware it WILL be cold from that. Also don't get any ice near the rest of the electronics. I also run a fan above the motor, blowing mostly down on the end bell and ESC. These will make the motor run faster and last longer. I've also noticed that you can gear the motor up a few teeth using these and it not hurt the motor.
