Well, I have heard two people say it has gone in setup mode on them during a race (I think one was you..), so I thought of mounting it on its side...but then I thought it would be a pain to see the screen. I am just using it how it is, even though I am running the risk of it going into setup mode. The thing is that the chances of that happening are soooo slim...I am not super worried about it because it is close to the wheel, and another car would have to hit it JUST right to do that.

I guess I will just have to learn the hard way before changing the positioning of it!

Get a chassis protector.

Hi, i know you have to sand the edges of the chassis and glue em, but do u have to file the cell slot (battery slots) and glue them, same with the top deck and shock towers

I got the idea from Hodapp's car. Honestly I wasn't sure if such a fan would work, but at the Nats while I was talking to Brent Thielke, he said it does work, so I gave it a try. Sure enough, my motor after a run was so much cooler.

I'm still very much learning about electric, my background is mainly 1/8 onroad gas. But yeah, the BMI chassis was much better. I end up running the main BMI chassis and stock XRAY top brace to have some more mechanical grip. Holding TQ yesterday in a club race until the 3rd heat and got collected in the 2nd corner from behind in the Main so was playing catchup the whole time, my Main batts was no good either, so end up 2nd..... not too happy about that.

Going to carpet track today to test the BMI chassis.

Dom
ps Team Butter, Thanks in advance!

The battery slots were already slotted, I did end up running CA glue in the battery slots. I usually do the top brace as well.

Dom,

Where did you run the fan wire? I can only see a portion of it, but cannot see where it goes. I'm just curious as to how you fastened the wire and were you went with it.

Thanks,
kevin

etzkev,

I ran the wire with a Novak switch and just soldered the 2 wires to the speedo's positive and negative terminals. So the fan will still be powered even if I turned the speedo off. I was told to do that so the fan can continue cooling off your motor while you are corner marshalling.

This is off topic but you know you done the fan do you recon it would just be ok to solder the wires from the fan to the positive wire and neg wire
