I put this fan on the cooler.
You can tell its not as loud nor as powerful as the stock fan but it did put out decent air. I tried it in my garage. It was pretty cold out there, the motor can was about 59 degrees to start with and within about 15 minutes the can was down to 29 degrees. But I am not sure how it will work at the track on a hot day. I think I am either gonna get the much more fan or try and find one on the net as powerful

Much More has a good idea on the motor cooler but is way to heavy on weight and is a pig on power....that technology is used on travel cooler/heaters.

Might be better for nitro motors if design right using light weight l-ion batteries!!

If I understand you correctly, these are not intended to be used in the car during a race. They are used 30-60 minutes before to bring the motor temps down.

5-10 minutes before running the car. If you do it for 30 min, you will have condensation on the motor which will cause corrosion on the motor.

well if you scroll up, i said i was going to buy one, and I did.

definately notice some intial race performance, car's performance deteriorates a little after 4-5 laps of my local track.. I definately believe it helps the motor esp on really hot days with 55deg C track temps.

stick it back onto the car after the race also, to cool the motor down. pretty neat product.

Then that's not a good idea...

Haven't you guys heard of ambient temperature and acclimation?

You almost got me..

I Am wondering, have the cooler and i like it

wouldn't it be more efficient if i place the fan upside down? that way i will be sucking air from the cool element instead of blowing air onto it, you can feel the heat coming out underneath and at the side of the cooler.

of you suck air from the cooler you won't get air that is already warmed... maybe better?

Just picked up one of these gadgets. Anyone have any more recent reviews of this? The summer season is rollin in and I figuered this would come in handy outside.

The motor cooler is a very good tool for the motor. If you see performance drop, all you have to do is loosen the screws holding the motor clamp, put the cooler upside down, fan facing down, and then use your finger to push down the motor clamp and then quickly tighten the screws.

FYI, my motor cooler only goes down to 1.1 degrees celcius when I first got it. After the fix, it goes down to -3.3 degrees celcius!!!

take a small plastic container and cut a hole big enough to fit over the clamp, put the container over the clamp

then put your motor in the clamp then put the container lid back in to seal off air going to the motor

we have been doing this with our crazy ronny coolers and they get down to about 9 - 12 degrees
