Most cooling fans for computers are actually fairly low CFM, as in reality they are rated for low noise, and super long life span.

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.
Do they make a 40mm version? as 4cfm while high for a small fan, I prefer to use a heatsink with a larger 40mm fan.

Thanks for the review.
Unlike other fans they don't break when you look at them wrong ...

STOP: fanning your motors and just get one of these:

I've had really bad luck with fans recently, 2 pro RC fast fans gave up this season. I run a two fan configuration, since it is really neccesary in our 10,5T boosted, almost everyone runs two fans. Motor temperatue is a critical issue around here. One was a Yeah Racing tornado fan and was really satisfied how it cooled, but it gave up, the second one is a fan bought from a local PC shop which works but not nearly as fast as the professional ones. I currently have two PC fans which is okay at the technical track I raced last time, but it won't work on my fast local track. So, I'm looking for the most durable high speed fan? I'm looking to buy LRP fans, simply because LRP is a strong name.

BTW I connect my fans to the ESC

Freezing your motors is also against ROAR rules too. So I wouldnt be trying that at anything other then a club race.

Goto your electronic shop, and you can buy the Peltier CPU cooler really cheap. I paid $28, and if I forgot about it I had ice on my motor.

That's the highest airflow 40mm fan I have yet found (still looking for stuff that's faster) It is 20mm deep and is a lot faster than the standard LRP fan.
8.1CFM
It's 5V so it needs to run off the receiver

There is also the problem that the fan only cools one side of the motor.

I always use a heatsink with a fan to try and even out where the cooling takes place.

I got 2 fans on my motor one in front and one in back lol maybe adding a heat sink up top would help even more but will look a little bulky
