Hi everyone

I'm trying to start a little project of fan cooling my c5's motor as it tends to bleep at me more in the recent hot weather we've had.

Has anyone figured out a way of efficiently cooling the motor using the regular stock 12v wiring?

I just wired in a computer fan to the 12v output to the motor so that it is running all the time that the motor is.Ducted the fan output to the open end of th motor. Check the fan outpits when selecting one, as they vary enormously, and obviously you need a powerful one for trhis application.
