New Thermal Cooling System Lifts The Ceiling On R/C Performance!
An amazing liquid cooling system for electric R/C car racing:
- MORE POWER
- MORE RELIABILITY
- LESS MAINTENANCE
Down With Heat!Over the last few years battery technology really moved forwards and provided R/C car racing with reliable cells with great performance. The low internal resistance and high capacity of today's batteries has cured the longstanding problems of lack lustre performance and poor duration. But it has brought us a new and irritating problem, HEAT!Heat is the enemy of high performance electric motors causing constant rebuilds and higher internal resistance which slows Modified and Stock Racing motors alike.The new Multi Patented TCS has been meticulously developed over the last 12 months to address the "Heat problem" and promises new levels of performance and reliability which can be fitted to your existing car.With possible changes to racing regulations in mind The TCS has been developed using 4 and 5 cell configurations too, with equally stunning results.
There are two main versions of the TCS:
- TCS-BL :For brushless motors and speedos eliminating bulky heatsinks and fans
- TCS-BS : For 2006 & 2007 brushed systems. Modified, Restricted & Stock
A tiny Micropumpcirculates a non-conductive liquid through the system. The fluid passes through a thin plate which is sandwiched between your motor and chassis where your motor's excess heat is extracted into the coolant. Forced by the pump the coolant continues to the cooling radiator which efficiently releases all of the excess heat, into the passing airstream.
You save money too, because overheating destroys your motor magnets, brushes and commutator, meaning constant rebuilding and sometimes blown motors and speedos.EFFICIENT? - oh yes!
The specially developed TCS pump uses less than 0.5 watt, whereas a typical twin fan setup uses over 2.5 watts.
The TCS Thermal Cooling Systemhas been developed in conjunction with the world's leading manufacturers.Available directly from TCS NOW!.. or from all good model shops.Multi Patents Pending (Worldwide)

Background Data:Heat in an electric R/C race motor is generated by current flowing in the com windings.This heat is conducted through the bearings and brushes and the air inside into the end bell and can.Because all of the major components in your motor are extremely conductive of heat, you can remove heat from any part of the motor and it will cool the whole motor. The motor is small, dense and thermally conductive.We discovered this through our many tests and experiments on the bench and on the track using temperature sensors and telemetry to send and record data whilst the car was actually racing.
The motor mounting face provides an ideal and practical area for the cooling plate, providing great thermal contact to the motor and hence very effective cooling.The graphs on the website were recorded by temperature sensors and sent to a lap top through on board telemetry.The figures shown in the graph were recorded at the Barham track in the UK, using an Xray T2 and CheckPoint 8 double and the results are typical of what you can expect with a TCS fitted.
