    do you really need it? heat sinks are relatively ineffective unless there is a fan attached

    Have to agree with Krazy-Slash, I've got one as well, and has helped with temps while running 3s, and its a perfect fit.

    I had this one one my 4x2 Velineon worked pretty good until I rolled it and it was destroyed. But remember oon the 4x2 the motor sticks out the rear of slash, might be safer inside the 4x4.

    I bought this one. I thought it would fit but it definitely does not fit the Velineon.

    I think it's still important to remember that a heatsink or heatsink/fan should not be a fix to an overheating issue but does help in getting more effiency out of a motor that is geared correctly
    I make sure my motor is operating in good temps then after making sure it is, I'll install a heatsink or fan
    Another important thing to understand about heatsinks is how it is able to draw heat away from the thing it is attached to is limited if your not using a type of heat transfer compound. You WILL acheive much better heat transfer (which is the WHOLE reason for appyling a heatsink) if using such a compound. This is just as important!

    I run the novak heatsink and fan, It works great!!!. I had the integy one and it wasnt all that good. First good tumble it got bent pretty good and never fit right again. It didnt have good contact with the motor can and the fins were rather small. The larger heatsink fins on the novak help to dissipate heat better. My vote is for the novak.

    Contrary to what most people on the forum think; the SEARCH engine is pretty easy to use and NOT that bad actually.
