I haven't even charged them yet. Those are the numbers printed on the box. I will test them myself on an Icharge 308.

I think I got a bum motorplate?? It looks like the counter sink is on the wrong side?

Im assembling my B5M Champ kit and it had some upgrade parts or whatever (this was the lightened motor plate).

What do you guys think

The lightened motor plate is for the 3 gear trans and the other one is for the 4 gear trans.

You should "like" SMC on Facebook and read some of the "c" rating stories he has posted. The ratings are not all they say they are!

For 3 gear the motor mounts on the right and on the left for 4 gear. The CE instructions don't really tell you how to put the 3 gear configuration together so I used the factory lite instructions as a reference.

Good to know. I bought the car with the V2 shock shafts and pistons already installed.
