it works, I have one and it really brings the temp down. Only thing is I may have to sell as I don't know if it will fit in my buggy yet.

You can't go wrong with them. They really work. I was really suprised by the difference it made.

Yup! it sure does lower the temps on the motor easily due to force convection (w/ the use of fan). This is really a one cool innovation although the priciple is just a simple as that right guys?..

yer sure if you like using re-circulated hot air

get yourself a Ride air duct, simply a piece of lexan attached to your car which directs fresh air into the car while it is on the move much better & much cheaper

Mine worked when it stayed on. The fan they use is pretty cheap though. There are 2 other guys that had them and their fans are broken (fins breaking, outer edge cracking).

Mine is totaly toast, fellow racer said "you gotta bend them a bit to make them fit snug" so he proceeded to bend it and then snap my heatsink and fan in half

vadn1. The cooling fan w/fins cannot be used on the XRAY.
XRAY cars have problems attaching fins to the motor due to the nature of not having enough rooms to do it.
I would suggest getting a similar fan only and stick it to your chassis while blowing your motor.
Hope it helps.
