Default Does a Heat Sink engine mount work?

Hi guys,

I wonder if someone ever saw a temperature difference with an Heat Sink Engine Mount?

Any link to good one for the R40 or the MTX3?

That all depends on who you ask.

I would say it won't help in lowering your engine temp.

Naaa, no one actually measured a temperature difference.

They're .1% cooling and 99.9% bench racing.

Default transfer heat

If you want to increase the efectiveness of heat transfer from the engine to the chassie, apply some electronics heat transfer paste between the mounts and the chassie. This does work well, if you try it you can feel the temp. increase on the chassie with your hand after you run the car.
