Default HW XR10 Pro Legacy, fan or no fan, that is the question

I am upgrading our D418 and D413ís to the XR10 Pro Legacy ESCís and I noticed there seems to be a mix of people running with and without fans on the ESC. We are running 13.5, 4wd buggies on indoor clay. Running the HW G3r motors (1stock, the other a Rotor Ron built).

the only reason I would consider no fan is the space, it provides a little more clearance.

As long as the esc doesnt over heat I think you can get a way without having a fan on it. That being said, I would still run a fan if you could.

If you are dealing with clearance issues, try mounting the fan on its side blowing at the ESC. Might not be the best cooling solution, but some is better than none.

this summer there was one night that i ran a fan on the 80a HW on 13.5 wheeler as it came off a bit hot
i switched to the 160a and never got close to a "high" temp again.

I run indoor carpet 2WD buggy (17.5t) and 2WD stadium truck (13.5t) both with Legacy XR10 and no fan. Zero heat issues. Give it a try without a fan and check the max temp the ESC reaches but I would guess anything 13.5t and up will be perfectly fine without a fan.
