I have been using the yeahracing fan in off-road. I found hard wired on battery power it moves the most of any fan I have tried so far. The trick to getting them to last (at least in off-road) is to carefully put some shoe goo between the circuit board and the back of the fan. Also on the wires coming off the fan. My first fan lasted about 3 weeks until the wire broke off the circuit board. The next one I shoe goo'ed and I have been using it for 5 months now. I think it is the vibration that kills the fan.

Hi everyone - I know you all loved my Geisha Fans. After working to buy these fans directly from the manufacture since July 2011 I've finally gotten word that the Geisha Fans as we knew and loved are discontinued.

I've been able to get the second best thing -- The Side Piece Racing Seis Fan. They come from the same manufacture, have the same physical strength but slightly different electrical design. The fan will only run at up to 6.7 volts of input current (Seis means 6 in Spanish). Compared to the Geisha Fan they are slightly slower running at receiver voltage as compared to the Geisha Fan running off a 2S lipo. If you run a Geisha and Seis at the same voltage - say 4 volts - the Seis fan is much faster!

Still -- the best option I can find! Check them out - http://www.sidepieceracing.com/products/seis/

The Yeah Racing fan is actually quite good from what I can tell, perhaps it's only flaw is the plastics on them are quite thin, if you try and press a little hard on one to set it on some double sided tape, they can do what mine did, and crack the housing.

I'd like to see other brands of fan rated like YR show theirs, blowing down on a small digital scale, as a simple test it shows something you notice when you first fire one up, they seem to push a lot of air for something so little.

A 12v fan needs 12v to get to its potential. Running a 12 v fan off 8 volts is going to produce nothing basically lol.

Looking at buying two of these for Vegas. This might be a dumb question but: When these are mounted behind the motor on the rear of the chassis, should it be blowing toward the front of the car or exhaust hot air toward the rear of the car? Which way has more effective heat dissipation is my question. Thanks.

It will, it will produce 2/3 of what it should at 12V.

What is the fan's rated throughput?

Do you know the actual volume of air it will shift at rated voltage?

Over 4cfm at 6v.
Fans must be run to off receiver (or anything below 6.7v). Wiring to the receiver gives you a bunch of options when swapping/rewiring electronics.
