Exotek have introduced several new accessories to make fan mounting easier. First up is the V2 variant of the company’s popular 1/8 Exo fan mount that features a larger double screw mounting bar. The mount allows to attach optional high powered 40mm and 30mm fans as the mounting bracket has multi-mount features that allows the fan to be securely affixed to the motor can in tight spaces. The extra modular design means with a few adjustments owners can mount a fan securely in any 1/8th scale truggy and most E-buggies and the mount positions the fans 10mm to 14mm away from the motor can. This proper spacing helps insure the fan does not lose power due to magnetic interference from the motor. A fan that is placed too close to the motor can actually stop spinning as the driver applies maximum throttle due to the fact that the motors stronger EMF can slow or shut down the fans EMF. The mount was designed for the use with high power 40mm and 30mm fans and standard 1/8th scale motors with 39.5mm to 40.5mm diameter and it comes in polished and anodised black or blue for a factory look.
Also new is the dual fan bar for the use with Exotek’s 1756 and 1914 fan mount clamps. The mount allows to easily attach two high powered 40mm fans to Exotek’s 1/8 fan mounts as it bolts directly to EXO1914 and EXO1756 mounts to double the cooling power in high heat applications. Machined from 7075 aluminium the mount comes black anodised and with laser-etched markings.
