T1FK05 motor mount problem and magic strip
so, today I received a new motor from one of my friends. He gave me the motor (17x2, Yokomo endbell, tuned), and there was a "magic strip" around it. Basically, its magnetic (soft iron or something I guess) and sticks to the motor, adding to the effect of the magnets. The problem is that it covers the vents on the motor...
Anyhow, I took it off the motor, and tried to install the motor in my T1FK05... and surprisingly, the motor does not touch the chassis, it sits about 0.5mm higher (I can slide some paper underneath it)... what should I do about this? And should I use the magic strip or not?
Does it matter that the motor is hanging 0.5mm above the chassis? My main concern with the magic strip is that it covers the vents on the motor... won't it overheat?
