An actual scientific test, no. Comparing temps between the one I run and the yeah racing fan my friend runs, my motor was cooler (same FDR, same brand motor). Granted it could be driving style. But I am more aggressive and usually my temps are higher then his.

These are 2.99 at a local electronics store. Easily dropped temps by 30 degrees, maybe more.



Will bolt up to any 40mm mount, which I obviously don't have...

Just find the electronics store and start looking around. You will find a fan section I'm sure. Pretty common. Not a Radio Shack though... You need the flea market type store. They have the best stuff at the best price.

If you guys haven't seen it already, I now how my Side Piece Racing Seis V2 fan available. It has a removable cable to allow for super custom mounting/gluing/whatever of the cable into your car. The cable shown is 150mm, but I have some other options available too. I'd like to hear every ones feedback. Thanks. Mike

If I were to install a 2 fan setup. (one in front and one in rear of motor) do you face both so they are pointing at the motor or do you turn the rear fan around to help pull air over the motor?

both pointing at the motor. about 7-9mm spacing from the motor is ideal... too close or too far is less effective.

Ya but are you guys making stronger mounts ...at 30 bucks a piece and to have all three mounts break on you ...is not worth it in my opinion.


best bang for the buck is the seis fans ....best fan ive used and moves tons of air....and sits firmly in place with some parma pro servo tape.

Did you break a mount?
If you did, we will replace them for free. Shipping on us as well.
All we need is approximate date of purchase & email address you used to purchase.
If you ever break more than one time, we just need a picture of the broken part.
We are not trying to compete with side piece racing at all. In fact if given the chance we would like to work with them. We are a manufacturer just like the people that made the Seis fans for side piece racing.

Our fans are also sold without the mount. So you can mount the fans just like you mentioned.

Again,Not trying to compete & would like to work with side peice racing.

Looks good, only a touch heavier than the YR Tornado and a lot more blow.

Is this the 30mm fan thats on your website, or is that an old one? Do you have a list of shops/distributors (that ship to the UK) that are stocking these?
