any thoughts???

I have the stock reciver on the vxl 16 merv, and i dont know much about the electrics of this project. What do i buy to attach the pump to the reciver, will it supply enough volts on my 2s lipos (7.4 v.), and would it just be easier to attach the pump to a 9v battery? would it work???
I suggest use a radiator(or something similar) because I dont think is very eficient use a bottle with ice cubes because every run you need to refill with more ice cubes and What happen if the water from the bottle is warm? There isnt a cooling system, you are using hot water for heat the motor. Just my suggestion
About the pump:
I am using a 12v pump and rigth now is working with just 6v( from the reciever)and is working perfect
