kufman, a fellow racer installed a screen on the chassis of his TC4 and no longer has a fan fuzz problem, even the screen doesn't get clogged. On my XRAY the fan is vertical and placed longitudinally so fuzz is not a major problem.

Had a word with malcolm to go to fibre lyte to see how much for carbon fibre is
It will look alot better then blue glassfibre, make it even more attractive
Still if he can`t get that done at a good price ,then i might chat up jason at BMI,

Thanks Mr Jolly,

he said he a a word or two with you on the dog and bone(that will get em) , i think that carbon is the way to go as like you said, most cars are carbon fibre now.

Hi Adamkerrnz,

i've not seen it but it could be something to do with the fan having bearings or bushings! if it has bearings the magnets could pull the bearing downwards causing it stop or bind!! i do know this for sure but its a possibilty!!

Any more info regarding prototypes? kinda thinking i might need a fan on the car... following the cooked motor at the weekend.

If you need somewhere to host your pics, send them to me on an email, and I'll host them on my site for you.

Regards
Ed

Best way for Fans, wire them directly on the batt, it'll work on 7.2V so will revv much quicker, and no pb with the 3rd channel whatsoever

hey tryhard,

yeah i saw the cooked motor on the EA thread. ive past your email onto the guy doing it and he's going to get in contact with you for some more measurements, as long as you dont mind?? im sure he will look after you once the designs been done for the 415 i have some pics of the pro4 COOL CAN FAN i run at the weekend i can email them over to you, but i would like to put them on here as well, im working out how to do that at the mo!!!

trf415boy,

i agree with you as thats the way i wire mine in, but these fans are coming with a conector on them and then you can either use in the reciveror cut it of and just solder the wire's in.

they are now starting to go out. and once they are all ready in carbon i will post pics of each one and what make and model they are for. thanks for the input guys keep it coming

by the way we've had two orders from the USA, people dont mind the exchange rate that much as the postage wont be alot!!


thanks again guys
