Following the 25mm ESC heatsink fan mount Team C now also have a version available for speed controllers with a 30mm fan mounting pattern. Designed mainly for touring car applications and made from black or orange anodised aluminium the fan mount attaches to the speed controller’s heatsink in order to place the included 30mm WTF fan unit at an angle. This setup can improve the cooling of the speed controller while also blowing towards the motor, allowing to spare the additional motor fan for less amp draw and reduced weight.
