Roasted nuts

So after the first few hot days of the summer im quickly reminded the RC can be like ridding a hibachi in traffic. I know about the spal fans and hooking up a switch but im wondering is there any way to set the fans to come on at a set, lower temp??? or is the swich my only/best bet....

Do the fan switch.... simple.
Or, get a set of Jimmy Bell's ( Thermae Cooling ) front mount rad kit. Very sweet setup. I have yet to install my set.

screw this.....just go fill up and enjoy the cool of the new fuel as your nuts are pressed against the tank, how refreshing.

You can probably plumb in thermo switch just like the SP1 has. You just have to find the parts and a place to put it.

A manual switch will be much easier though. When I ran mine in hot weather (above 90 or so) I would just turn them on anytime I wasn't on the freeway or highway.




I'm always right.
