    Best replacement fans for ESC and Motor?

    Searched and that function doesn't work well at all lol.

    Big air jumps the other day and my Max6 ESC fan no longer moves, it tries kinda and I don't see anything stuck in the blades. These were easily 20' high landing to flat and sometimes a down ramp, cracked my Proline super duty body between grill and headlight area, mostly good landings but a few nose/rear down oopsies lol

    What's the best replacement fans for Max6 ESC fan and Traxxas 8S motor cooler?

    I have always been a fan of Yeah Racing fans myself - find out what size you need and pick one out accordingly.

    Yeah me too, have them in my brushless Slash 4x4 esc and added one on top the motor too, one that died was because of high speed crash into concrete post and it cut the wire. Wasn't sure if the aluminum Protek and some other brands I read about on here are any more durable?

    I run the castle 2028 fan and shroud. For my motor. It just gets zip ties on. Vs how stock fan is shroud is screwed into heat sink,

    So far it's held up well to my heavy bashing.

    For my fans I use compressed air to blow out the dirt, and a small amount of silicon spray to lube it. If you do that with your fans they will last a long time.
    Life's to short to be a sour puss.
