Ours will come without a fan. It is just a mount, and it won't be very expensive. I have never liked running heat sinks on my motors; they get in the way and we have done tests in the past where they actually make the motors run hotter.

This part is something we are releasing to the public just because it's something I like. We don't claim it being better, but it is a lot easier to work around. Especially when switching motors, no heat sink gets in the way of wiring.

Depending on the fan you use, you will see different, but lower motor temps.

Just that you get what the TC6 needs, and have put those things into production. The 1,1,1.5 pistons are silky smooth, the spring rates and quality top notch, lock blocks works 100%, ball stud caps work as advertised....and now I don't have to shoe goo a fan to my chassis!

I prefer the Fantom/Boss/Geisha fan, but since they're all gone, the 30mm 3racing tornado seems to be defacto replacement. Now, if you could get those other fans, you'dd have a license to print money!

Not a fanboy for many things at all....EVER, but I must admit to owning everthing that you've put out for my TC6, and it keeps getting better and more reliable/consistent with every new addition.

There are only a few other TC6s at my track, and with each problem they have, I show them the RSD solution!

Awesome! Thank You for your words.

If you think the pistons are nice, just wait for our soft bladders They are about 5 weeks out, and they make the shocks feel like Tamiya shocks.

The bladders take away the "squeakiness" the TC6 shocks can sometimes develop. Our soft bladders also allow you to get true ZERO Rebound, and in case you do want to add a little, the old o-ring inside the top of the bladder does the trick.

I agree completely. Every RSD part and I'll be getting the fan mount, too. My gripe with heat sinks is that they usually get in the way of motor wires if you are wanting a clean install.

The Tornado fan should bolt right up! I think the site said 19K RPM at 5V. I usually hard-wire to the battery so it'll scream!

That would be GREAT. I noticed the squeakiness setting 0 rebound. It didn't really feel like there was an air bubble, but it wasn't as smooth as it could be.

Have you tried the Muchmore 30mm high speed fan? It is the best I have seen myself. I have never seen the others though.

Ran 16.5 14.5 this weekend, and the car was great. Springs really smoothed it out. I run on a high grip smooth track.

Also ran the rear shock tower mount with the short link. Car rotated better.

Keep up the good work RSD!

I think the Muchmores were out of stock when I went to order, but I've heard good things of both!

Not that it would be necessary but you could extend that fan mount to allow 2 fans, like some of those beastly heat sinks I've seen. I've never personally needed 2 fans, even for 17.5 stock on 130* asphalt......

I read somewhere that only single fan set-ups are ROAR legal. Someone correct me if I am wrong. I know that a lot of people don't care about ROAR, but I'm old school, so I still do. And yes, an extra fan would be definitely possible, but not likely.

Per ROAR, 1 fan on the motor, 1 on the ESC. We actually tried 2 of the Fantom/Boss/Geisha fans on Matt's 17.5 car, and saw no improvement over 1 fan.
