Than fan lasted for two full race days before half the blades broke off. It is not designed to handle outdoor 1/8th scale conditions. I would not recommend it for that application. It might be alright for indoor racing on clay.

i tried this in the field and it didn't last more than 3 months of use (fan blades broke), i put the blower shroud on backwards , this allowed less dirt to get sucked in. it is not really worth it unless your motor is hitting close to 190 degrees. i got my mamba 2650kv motor to 185-190 degrees and it still has all the power i need, Mamba brush-less motors are tough as nails.

1 race day and all the blades broke off, ilooked for replacment fan (only the actual fan) but there is not such a thing. pros: easy to assembly but last for only couple of races.
William Robinson
Yeah, no! Great concept but poor execution. This fan blows! Will not handle 1/8th scale racing as most have noted. Might be better with a different fan but will likely not last very long either. Use a heatsink instead.

Looks good, and fits the 1512 1.5Y nicely. Does not hold up well to 1/8 scale abuse. I would gladly pay twice as much for something with a heavy duty fan and thicker gauge wire for the power leads. Update: Got about 3 hours of use before the fan died. Luckily, the fan is replaceable, so now I need to find a replacement fan. Update II: The MuchMore high rpm fan (MMRMRU30FAN) is a perfect fit in the CC Blower shroud. It makes much more RPM than the fan that is in the Blower. I highly recommend this fan.

I agree the blades break too easily. My last fan still works fine but is unbalanced and therefore very noisy. The plastic housing really lacks any outlets for the fan to release the air it attempts to suck in, so I used a body reamer and made holes. Also I am covering the top of the new fan with some thin screen material like on the chassis protectors. It will decrease efficiency slightly but it should keep out the rocks that break blades.

Have to agree to the major reviewers in here, both mine for my MP9e and my wife's Mugen MBX6e gives a terrible sound before it calms own after about 15-20 sec's with power on. I can live with that for sure, problem is there is no significant different in heat loss whatsoever... So I guess the best thing is to go for quality fans that handles high voltage out of the pack and wire it down to the voltage needed and the make a stand for the fan of alu, carbon , plastic or whatever is the most suitable material. Or just look for other, better setup stands for a 1:8 or 550 motors...

This...is...worthless. Before even installing you can see that the design is NOT conducive to good air flow. There is nowhere to draw in air so that it flows around the motor. Add to that fact that it's plastic and operates as an INSULATOR instead of a DISSIPATOR and you have a recipe for failure. Even if it didn't fall apart (which mine hasn't because I only used it for about 10 minutes) it would be worthless.

It wouldn't even work with my tekin bushed motor. The fan barely blows air at all

I have had three of them and no blades came off but the bearings were crap and made terrible screeching second time out, it worked intermittently until it just froze up!! Will not buy again ever.

it's crap... and i don't know how to remove the stock fan, it seems glued.... i think i'll cut it open from above and put in a real fan....

Yes GOOD idea bad results mine did the same thing broke after just a couple races.
Leo Craft
Half the blades broke off after a few races on an indoor mild 1/10 scale track. I do not recomend this fan.
Brandon Phillips
had this on my slash 4x4 last 2 batteries before the whole thing fell apart did not even wreck my truck i would not buy this fan again junk

The fan lasted about 10 minutes in my buggy before one of the blades fell off. Even before the blade fell off the air flow was pretty poor. With a new internal fan fitted all is running well. I would suggest swapping the fan out for something a little more decent. The housing does the job.

Caste is a wonderfull company, but if they product in China, the quality of product down to a chit level! Sorry is a reallity!

This is not a heat sink, it's cheap plastic garbage, if I had known before I wouldn't of bought it, oh well I'll run it till the fan quit's and throw it away, it's not aluminum.
