    Heatsinks for the Velineon 3500

    What should i pick for the heatsink on the Velineon 3500, considering today i got it to 175F.
    Fan or no fan?

    I like the one by Integy. In fact that is the only products that I will ever buy from that company. Heatsink with a fan combination on the motor will greatly reduce motor temperatures.

    In my opinion! I really don't think Integy is all that bad. It all depends on what you buy to be honest with you. I do not care for the fan though. It is way to weak. I know this from experience. I did find that the 30 mm Wild Torbo Fan fit right on the Integy heat sink. Had to do some minor modifications to get it to fit the motor due to the transmission case. That was the stock case. I now have the FLM gearbox and can fit a variety of heat sinks and fans. So far i have not needed a fan due to the aluminum gearbox absorbing a lot of heat from the motor. awesome stuff

    Im telling ya! Don't waste your money on the integy.... You would be better off running behind it blowing air on it yourself.

    Another option for consideration ... I am running this Yeah Racing and I like it so far.
    I had the temperature cut off only once after hard bashing on the beach (13t pinion on 2.8 trenchers) for half an hour but I think it was the ESC rather than the motor. IMO dual fan version is always better, giving more air flow on the motor.

    OK OK I give up. The Integy fans are the greatest fans in the world. I have been outnumbered here. Go for it!

    I have had great success with the Integy heatsink with a fan. You obviously have not. Please don't devalue your opinion. Everyone's opinion count here

    Thanks for the replies. I ended up getting the integy single fan unit and moving the fan closer inwards on the mount. The temperature outside when i got it was around 95F and the heatsink kept my motor around 150-160. Although my motor was cool, the esc had gone into thermal protection stage 1, so i brought it in and let it cool.
