    How to make a e-jato

    I'm on my mission to 100mph with an e-jato. How do I get a motor mount(do I have to make my own?) and any other things I will need. Thx

    Some people made the motor mount with an emaxx motor plate, I made mine from a rc8 motor mount, locked the tranny on second speed, and ran a MMP-3800 on 3s. A MMM-2200 will be hard to fit, but not impossible.

    Drill one or two holes close to the edge without touching the internal gears, insert a pin, and if you want but not necessary fill out with jb weld.

    the pic is not mine, I just google it, but that's what I did.

    Yeah that's the motor plate I used, but I disagree with single speed conversion, they don't work good speed wise.

    Probably you can get it done with the jb weld alone.

    Hello,
    here is one topic I made concerning the tranny conversion: http://brushlessmania.forumpro.fr/t4...sion-du-e-jato

    it is in french but pics are clear enough to understand, or you can translate it with one online translator.

    One more word:
    on my last conversions (for my son and some friends), I used epoxy instead of syntofer/"cold welding". With 3 weeks of curing, it becomes extra strong with just enough elasticity, that "cold welding" hasn't got

    what kind of epoxy is it? but does it matter if it is either cold welding or epoxy is used.

    as said, cold welding is not flexible, a slow epoxy remain with a little elasticity.
    I already broke a cold welding 2nd speed locking (after 3 years of intensive use), but never with slow epoxy (on 2 jato used intensively for 3 or for years)...

    the fact is that with slow epoxy and the big gap to fill in, it takes about 3 weeks to cure correctly at 15C
