I have found evercool fans last a long time and move lots of air.

That is not a whole lot of cfm.

Sidepieceracing.com has 25mm fans that move more air than those 30mm fans. 4+ cfm

That looks like a nice 25x25x15mm 6v fan but I think Chirs F. was wanting a 30mm fan.
Been using the Evercool 5v fans for many years and never had a blade come off any of them.
Two of the 5 fans I have (25x25x10 & 30x30x10) are 4 years old and there still working great.

Murfdogg Racing Products has a killer 30mm fan set up for dirt oval cars that I adapted to my tc. I swear you could mount them pointing towards the rear of you car and it will go faster

Most of the heatsinks out there will do little or nothing for you at all other than simply hold the fan and get in the way of proper airflow. I've got a box of the little things from all over, of all types, and nothing ever worked anywhere near as good as a naked fan blowing on a naked motor.

The only down side is that it has to be powered through the RX on the BEC supplied voltage. That may or may not prove to be an issue. Probably more of an issue with guys running the Savox/Spektrum gear that requires an external cap to prevent brown outs (not all do), as the cap will use the 4th slot in the RX and compete with the fan(steering servo, ESC, transponder, and open).
