Hey J-P, looking good.

From the pictures you have there, I reckon you could put another fan onto that mount, blowing into the can holes... or is that an idea malcom has had already

Regards
Ed

yep, he's already getting brackets made up with 2 fans fitted. i had a look at the 415 prototype he's made up and it looks good i will email you a list of the stuff he is doing, you can then show it to your friends and people you race with ( hint hint )

thanks for the help

is this fan to be used while racing? if so would it not make sense to have the fan sucking instead of blowing air back in the can? otherwise you are just blowing hot air back onto the can.

hey pheyhoe,

we've talked alot about this and tested the fan blowing or sucking and found the best results and temp drop to be from the fan blowing onto the com area. and now with the twin fan nearly avalible you can cool the com and the can at the same time!


hopefully going to get a web page set up showing the all the fans avalible in the next couple of weeks, and some new products that are on their way from my friend at RC Inovations!!!

MR RC Inovations has got a spray glue activator, this is real good for getting those glued wheels to cure in a instance, also the super glue he produces stay`s flexible after it has cured & flexe`s with the trye which is nice

Where`s my fan

The reason for that is because the contact zone betwee the comm and the brush is where most of the heat is generated, and there is very little air flow there aswell
