    Question Motor mount mod

    Hey guys been a while. Been bashing the heck out of my truck. Breaking & upgrading thnx to all of your help & experience. Think I'm ready for a motor mount mod to reduce motor flex. Have seen two versions that have been talked about. The two motor plate mod and the rear motor mount. My prob is I can't find either thread. Second motor plate is straight forward. Can't seem 2 find the rear motor mount though. In everyone's experience witch is better & why?

    I did the motor mount mod and didn't work for me, my motor plate had way to much flex. I was stripping a spur almost every time I ran and I'm running mod1 gears. After the HPP motor brace I haven't stripped one yet. just my 2 cents.
    Who needs brakes!!!!

    +1 on HPP rear motor mount.
    Did a spur gear all the time before getting it. Have not stripped one since!
    Buy HPP - and get the wheel hexes while you're at it - they are great!


    Bash it like someone else has to fix it!

    Just install the double motor plate. It is larger, more metal and sticks up a little bit to act as a rollover point. No other mod is necessary. I have never had a problem with motor flex. Its a cheap, ez, permanent fix.

    The HPP motor brace is awesome and all, but I would still recommend using a rear chassis brace in conjunction with the mount.

    I just have a question about the stock motor mount. Do people have trouble because the motor vibrate so mutch that it flex and strip the spurt gear?

    I have notice that my new erevo brushless have motor wobble, but after balancing the wheel and tighten every screw on the truck it helped a lot, but i still could see the motor vibrate littlebit when i hold it up in the air and give full trottle as you could see on this video http://youtu.be/fzdluqft9Bw this is after a few hours work with balancing and dissambled and tighten everything.

    This is how it looks like after a few runs out of the box in slow motion but i still dont strip any gears http://youtu.be/yIsMvTzF-VQ

    As you could se it wobble a lot, if you looked at the first video after i have balanced the wheels and tighten screws i wonder if that vibration is normal on a stock erevo brushless?
