Default Cooling a 56/58mm can motor

Anyone know of any heat sinks for a large size motor? Castle has a plastic .... fan and mount thing but plastic isnít the best at releasing heat

The Castle fan/shroud does a great job blowing cool air around the motor can. Plastic or not, it's the fans doing the job and you can expect temps to drop by a good 20+

Yeah allot of people use the Yeah Racing Tornado fan
I actually use the SkyRC fan/shroud as it's readily available here, and the fans are actually screwed in for easy removal. I use the YR fans

Or just gear your motor properly and do away with the need for a fan altogether

Well that's true to of course, however i don't use a fan because a motor is getting too hot, i use a fan to keep it even cooler, 20deg below the maximum recommended

I know that there are water cooling jackets out there for boats. I have one but you would have to do alot of extra work to make it work.
