Need a fan

I really pushed the controller hard last night on the way home from work and it got a little warm. I noticed that it started limiting the amps and would only let me pull around 300. When I got home I felt the aluminum plate that it is mounted to and it was very warm. (my Open Revolt never got that hot) I will find a fan and get it mounted as soon as possible. This morning I decided to take the freeway to work and the Fiero quickly got up to 70 mph pulling only 400 amps while accelerating. Once I got to 70 mph I was able to cruise at that speed while only pulling 150-175 amps. The controller was only slightly warm when I got to work, but I will still get a fan. So far, so good.
