Default Just to let ya know...

To all the guys who I've talking to (emails)...I will be at OC Circuit (La Mirada) this Sunday- Mothers Day... I'll have your "SuperCoolers". I'll be there early and may need to leave early (by 3:30).

If anyone else needs a "SuperCooler" before Reedy, this may be my last race for a few weeks. I'll be going to Japan for a week (to meet w/Tamiya) then on to Europe to meet w/ a few other company's.
Just let me know and I'll bring a few extras. See ya there!

Thanks, Jeff -- Team Pharriswheel

I use it on my Tamiya 415, which is very similar layout to the XrayFK05--I'll be at a local race tomorrow and see if someone has a new Xray so I can try it out. I'll let ya know.

Yes
I was using mine for the Yokomo BD and my buddy who was also racing another class asked to try it for his FK05 it fit just fine. When you order you tell him the car you are usign it on and he sends the right one.

Jeff, How COOL is that?
Total pun intended.
Nice work, glad to see that your hard work is paying off.
Keep it up.
Glad I got me a PharisWheel original, before Tamiya or Xray slaps there name and extra big price tag on it....
I'm not hatin' but I know how business works....Business Major...LOL Like I'll use it...
Anyhow Take Care and GOD Bless

I was thinking.........if you use this out doors then the air temp would surley be higher than the supercooler, this would naturally create condensation on the cold motor, that means a wet motor. Do you have to blow it out with an air hose and re lube the bushings/bearings each time?

You actually end up with frost on the cooler and a very little amount of condensation on the motor. Not realy much to worry about. When you pull it off, before you turn on the car, just wipe or blow off any moisture. Becareful though not to get it on the ESC.

The experience I have is that you don't really get that much moister and that isn't a problem for motors anyway. You only need to woory about water on your electronics.

Jon you got PM.

An electric motor will run under water.....a little moisture on the surface isn't gonna harm anything.....

The only thing you need to watch with moisture is the ESC.

Wink Peltier cooling

Peltier cooling is only 10 percent efficient, also the weight and
the current draw would be impractible for racing. The best cooling
solution for an electric motor is setting up a carbon tetrachloride
drip over the comm. It was used very successfuly in the slot cars days.
The principle is simple. The ccl4 drips on the comm and evaporates
absorbing heat and dissipating heat off the comm, the same principle as a swamp cooler. The problem is finding ccl4, I think it was band because it is classified as an ozone killer.

If you'd read what this thing is all about it's not something that goes in the car while it's running. You use it to cool the motor almost to a freeze BEFORE your run and take it off right before you hit the track. Read before posting please.
