    Hi

    Does anyone have one, and is it worth getting over the stock aluminum one.

    Have you even been able to find the red aluminum parts anywhere?

    Hi

    Tower Hobbies has them in stock, but if it doesn't add any real benefit to the handling or durability of the RC I probably wont get it.

    I've seen them in Tower also. I was thinking about picking up some of the parts for my Fury

    I have it. The stock (blx) one is aluminum too I believe so not sure it improves cooling any. That said, I have never had motor temp issues with it, even on 3s. Just bling is my thought and it does look good.

    I have been trying to decide whether or not to get one or look for a fan instead

    The battery in my caliper is dead but, to my eye, they look the same thickness when held next to each other.
