Motor temps went down about 20 degrees from a fan change.

He later said that he had to buy some crazy amount of them as he had them made to his specs. I know he had several thousand of them at the shop boxed up so I would assume he probably wasnt BS'ing about having them made. If they were something easy to get he wouldnt have bought that many at one time I am guessing.

Which 30mm fan exactly are you talking about? I looked on their site and I see several fans! A link would be great if you could post one.

If you get one that has the yellow 3rd wire just cut it off by the board.

I just received the Superior Hobbies fan last weekend, the one from the link. It is now 2 wire (one power, one ground), instead of 3 wires. Confirmed with another local racer who also recently purchased another.

Superior hobbies fan is the best ive used yet. At 9 CFM nothing so far compares. It was an immediate 50* drop in running temp. I just picked up some side piece racing fans that I will also try out.

I've seen a lot of racing dropping the heat sinks lately. A few even made side walls from lexan to guide air to the motor. Some made ducts to vacuum air from the motor. I even made a duct to extract the air. If time permits I'll snap and post a picture after work later today. I will test it Friday, I hope.

This is what I came up with after seeing a few guys making enclosures for their fans. This one is pretty much air tight at the edges where I was able to seal it with carbon fiber sticker I did. On one side I put a bit of foam and it sits on the chassis. It should or, at least I'm hoping it will vacuum air through the holes outside of enclosure, through the motor, and through the fans. As you can see the other motor is still soldered to the ESC. I will run this with and without the fans to see what results I get on Friday. I'll update afterwards with results. Hope it works.

What's the opinion on the R1 WURKS fan? I just got one but have not tested it yet.

It's one of the better fans out there.... Didn't notice a temp difference between the R1 and Yeah Racing.. R1 is a lot quieter which is a plus...

I can't believe a thread about the best fans has gotten this much replies...lol

Good fan if you just want straight plug and play into your RX. I have it on one of my cars. The fan from Superior Hobbies soldered directly to ESC has been working better for me though. Of course it better work better as its double the price.

Probably blows more air because it's direct wired....
