Hi friends. Greetings from Malta.
JAVA & DOTMAN.
The motor clamp is part of a Fastrax optional item. A proper heatsink comes with it too.
I haven't used the heatsink because I let the fan do the work of cooling the motor and don't want to retain the heat on the heatsink. The fan should blow through and over the motor, and by my understanding that should be enough.
Put it this way, we run 8 turn motors in our hot climate. This car is always the quickest mod touring car and we always end up with plenty of power in the cells, even after 5 minutes of racing.
The reason for the different mounting of the rear camber link is simply to ease removal of the rear diff cover. With this system all you need remove is the 6 screws retaining the cover, and 1 shock screw to lift the case off and get at the diff.
There is a spacer under the ball joint which can be varied to alter the rear roll centre but at present it's position is similar to the top inner hole on the tower.
What I have done is played with spacing under the suspension mounts so that both front and rear lower arms run parallel to the chassis - no kick up or antisquat in other words. It seems to work very well that way.
