That is why I'm asking Q.
Gotta understand the issue.

I just rewired a led on my 40mm mod TC fan after coming off in a nice crash. Super easy to do... Just peel back the label.

These were running off of receiver or ESC/batt voltage? If ESC - how/where did you attach to ESC power?
ESC and wired direct like all other 8.4 fans do.

Are the 40mm fans any better? Do you want me to try and rewire my trumpet fans? I don't have a problem with that if that will fix it.

did you use the plug included w/ the fan, or snip it off?

running too sort of a fan wires causes excess strain on everything..

Yes I used the plug and about two more inches past to wire to esc. After one fan blew though I just sniped it off and reused plug for backup fan instead of trying to in solder from esc. Time crunch. Are you asking everyone these questions or just me?

Josh, the 40mm fans are awesome. It's actually what I have been running for the majority of the summer. It spans the vent holes on motors that have holes on both sides of the can and obviously helps keep them cool.

But aren't 40mm not allowed at big races?

At ROAR events, a fan larger than 30mm isn't legal. For the majority of races we compete in, this is moot.

Perhaps you can help with the fan issues I had.

Fan A) very slow out of the packet when placed next to the motor would not start spinning by itself required a push to start it. Died after 2 runs and wouldn't work at all no crashes.

Fan B) seemed to work well but died after 8 runs no crashes no damage.

Fan C) worked well for 3 months moved heaps of air, occasional crashes but none strong enough to break any parts on the car. Suddenly became weak moving little air and requires sometimes a push to get it started.

All fans were 30x10mm connected to battery voltage ie 8.4V.
