Are your motors HOT?

While we were running our robot we noticed the BOSCH and FP were running a little warm, so we found some heatsinks that are BAM extruded aluminum. Heres the link, and they look awesome. Put them on and they work great. Hope it helps someone else

Why wouldn't they be legal they are extruded aluminum less than 2x3" for aluminum extrusions in the additional hardware.

Thumbs up Looks legal (and cool) to me!



It is difficult to judge the scale but if it is under 2X3 inches in profile, I suppose it is legal.

I would use the weigh somwhere else, personally, but hey, it is a free country.

Use 'em in good health.

why not

I dont have a problem with that. I was just wondering if they where legal. Maybe I could talk my team into getting them.


Why not just mount a fan onto one of those chipuas (whatever they are called), then take air ducks from the chip's to the drills lol

I think they could kill you. I want to turn one into an electric weed whacker!!! I also want to make a hovercraft with one hehehehe!

I don't know how many of you saw them last year, but we made our own heatsinks out of aluminum for our fisher price motors. We weren't able to practice for more than five minutes at a time before we got them.

The muffin fan works great if you position your motors in the right position. We had the muffin fan blowing on both of our drill motors (used as our drive) and the TechnoKats motor mounts (THANX) and we never had a over heating problem ever. Before that we actually have video of our motors smoking because we broke the internal fan and it started to melt (pretty cool video).
