Remote Control Car Fan


Introduction: Remote Control Car Fan

In this instructable I will show you how to put a fan for a cpu in a cheap electric rc car to keep it cool oh and by the way this is my first instructable.
Materials:9 volt battery connector Remote control car Cpu fan 9 volt battery and hot glue gun or tape or both.

Step 1: Connecting the Fan

First connect the 9 volt connector to the fan wires I did this by just twisting the wires and taping them since I didnt have a soldering iron.Then find a place on the Remote control cars body close to the electric motor then hot glue it on the body.Make sure it dosent touch the body and it has to be high enough to get air on top of the fan

Step 2: Fan Wires and 9 Nine Volt Battery

Hot glue or tape the fan wires to the body to keep them out of the way oh its best to use hot glue. Then tape the 9 volt battery somewhere in an empty space. It is best to use tape so you can change out the battery with ease. thats it your all done and the supplies should only cost you 15$

    i have found out the model of car used in this instructable, its the 2006 camaro concept from the "bigtime muscle" series from Jada toys, ive got one just like it.
    its most likely the 1:16 scale version, but it could be the 1:14 scale version too.

    Also you can make a hovercraft...maybe not remoted. You will use only the plastic cover of the car, close all the hols, plug the fan and enjoy it!

    well first of all if you close all the holes there is no air for the fan to push downwards and by the way the fans used in pc's arent strong enough...!!!

    You see!!! All you need is imagination and this brilliant community...

    this is cool. i dont see why it would need direct cooling like this unless you planned on driving it in the desert or something.

    dont xmods have their battery compartments on the sides of the chassis? or am i thinking of some other car?

    Not even an X-mod, This is a very cheap piece of crap rc that goes like 5 MPH. XD

     you mounted the fan against a flat surface...that's gonna do jack diddly squat, it has no air to pull in. also cars like this definitely don't need cooling

    To save on weight why not just run the fan off the card battery?

    Some rc cars do. The only ones I see needing it though are high-performance electrics (Xmod, mini-z, Megapro, etc)

    will I have moved on and now have a Tamiya tt01 and need a body with light housings for pretty cheap and trying to figure out how I can do an instructables on it

    I like this instructable, but that seems like it's geared more towards disposable RC's, I actually made a functional hood scoop for my xmod, and my E10 has never had any overheating problems. the only reason I made a hood scoop for the xmod was because I had a spare hood laying around, so I played around with it and made it look awesome. great instructable though
