Perfect. Thanks for the pic.

Yeah, I had an origional T1 kit out of their first release like 3 years ago, but that's been gone for a while... Only sedans I have are a couple XXXSG+'s. Where'd you hear I got an XRay??

I was talking to losi lunatic and he said he had gone in to the xray thread and read that you picked one up a few months ago.

I use Associated lower pivot balls and shock end, and spring cup as well as AE springs. Losi springs will not work with them.

Has anybody had trouble getting the motormount in and out of their chassis?

I recently upgraded to the newer style G+ chassis after running the original graphite chassis since the car first came out. After the switch, my motor plate gets stuck, or jammed into the chassis half of the motor mounting area.

I've tried to lightly sand down some areas, including the mount channel, but I've had no sucess in getting my motor mount any more free. It's very frustrating as it makes gear mesh adjustments nearly impossible. I'll even remove the clamp completely from the car, and I still cannot rotate the motor while in the mounting channel.

Has anybody else had this problem? What tools did you use to solve the problem?

make sure your motor mounting plate is not bent - this will have the effect your mentioning

Cartman34-

On the older motor plates the rib that goes around the outside is square which made for a tighter fit. If you pick up a new revised plate for the xxxsg+ you'll notice that the rib is now shaped like a 'v' instead of square.
