FTW Racing Carbon Fiber Fan Mount w/40mm Fan
Not good value for the money. The carbon mount looks good however, it is let down by the remainder of the design. When using a 540 motor the screws that hold the fan to the carbon mount stick out the bottom thus are very close to the motor's solder points. The metal spacers need to be replaced by a two carbon spacers (similar to the Jammin Losi Carbon Top Plate & Spacer Set). The plug also needs to be changed to the more common servo plug. However, once installed works well to keep motor cooler, although already replaced the fan twice.

FTW Racing Carbon Fiber Fan Mount w/40mm Fan
I’m a guy that never leaves reviews….I just read them and appreciate that someone else that took the time to leave feedback. I was skeptical of buying this because of the other reviews but my hobby shop owner had one on his truck for a few days and said it really helped to reduce heat and the carbon looked pretty cool. So I pulled the trigger. Both the hobby shop owner and myself had lost all the blades off the fan but one after a few sessions on the small indoor clay track. Other observations, the screws are a little long one is maybe ¼ inch away from hitting the solder points on the motor (this is why they include the spacers – makes it a tad more difficult to install). Also the fan is a two pin connection and to correct the other review left – you can simply plug in the two pin connection to your receiver. You might be better off replacing the fan with a different manufacturer since it seems to be a common problem.

FTW Racing Carbon Fiber Fan Mount w/40mm Fan
This is the worst RC product I have ever owned. While the carbon fiber looks pretty, everything else about the kit is junk. In a single practice run all of the fan blade except one broke off the fan. The design of the product as a whole is also terrible. The fan comes with a 2 pin computer plug, not a servo plug. So you have to cut it off and put on a servo plug of your own. Just what you expect from a $50 product right? The screws that hold the fan to the CF mount are too long and stick out the bottom. The mounts uses awkward spacers between the center diff mount and the CF fan mount making it a giant pain to assemble as well as leaving the spur gear unprotected. Basically FTW cuts a nice looking piece of CF then throws it in a bag with a bunch of junk and call it good at a premium price.

Been running this fan on pro 4 4600kv for about 4 months now- drastically reduces motor temps and has ran flawlessly

Very nice quality. Mount looks great and the fan really keeps motor temps down! Been running it for a couple months with no issues.
