    Dromida. Which is the best cooling fan to use?

    I'll start off with saying I've recently started the hobby. Last summer I bought a T-Maxx and two months ago I picked up some Dromida vehicles. I've gotten pretty far on my DB build, and I'm wondering what you guys suggest as far as a cooling fan for my Hobbywing system? It's a 12 turn 2030 motor and it seems to get a little hot. I've searched online for 2030 heatsink/fan combos but havent come up with anthing. It runs on an 18A esc on a 7.4v 20C lipo.

    Don't think that is possible to find, as that motor size is really odd. I assume its the same size as a 380 can though? If so, this will work.

    Would I be better off just running a fan with no heatsink then?

    In my opinion, yes.

    Thanks. 30mm Muchmore Racing fan should be in in a couple days. I hope it helps the motor stay cool.

    I picked up a used one and I've been having the overheating issue also. I found am integy heatsink for the 1/16 slash w/ the 380 motor and I want to put the fan on it. Did the dromida come with optional pinions or spurs? I'm thinking since it's used it may have been changed.

    10,11,12, and 13 tooth pinions are available for Dromida vehicles. Only one spur gear is available. I'm running a Muchmore ultra high speed 30mm fan on my motor. The Hobbywing esc hasn't heated up for me. I get around 130 degrees on my setup
