Question GPM Alloy Battery Heatsink Mounts

Hi All,

I firmly believe we are all aware that our batteries will generate heat while running our beloved Mini Z's. But since GPM have brought out the new Alloy battery heatsink mounts, do they actually cool the battery off that much or are they just something for the cosmetic look again from GPM? Will they actually make a difference performancewise - since not that much air flow gets to the battery once the cover is on....

Cheers people~!

I have noticed a DRAMATIC difference in how hot the batteries get with & without the heatsinks. They seem to help the temp. of the batteries alot. Before, when I would change batteries ( I have 700 mah energizers) they would be VERY they are much cooler...just what I've noticed

Does the added weight make the car more stable? or make the weight more toward the center to have a 50/50 weight distribution? I know BMWs have that so they handle better
