Not at all. The kit motor mount is perfectly fine, but removing the screw that supports the mount to the top deck completely may cause you to lose mesh in a run. As Jerry says, make sure you just keep that screw in. For a slightly more central flex you can add a cone washer and use a countersunk screw instead.

It was simply just to point out incase anyone goes ahead and does it, and to point out the tuning option with the optional one piece motor mount.

Enjoy

Have all of you guys CA'ed your chassis? I haven't really done that with my last few cars; I just sand the edges really well, and have had no issues.

The reason I like to ca'ed the edges ,so I know the ,it keep the carbon layer together from sparating or delaminates,.....sanding the edges does make it look nicer...

lets not forget that ca-ing the edges also changes the chassis flex, oh yes it does so shut up before you start

( as usual ) Take the edges off the carbon fiber with sandpaper ( under water to keep from inhaling the hazzordous carbon dust ) then rub blue locktite along the edges with a paper towel. Done in minutes !

yeah JB, I'll never CA again ! EVER !!!! too much work and I don't think it helps.

The blue loctite, however, is so easy its worth doing imho. It may not do much but it does darken the exposed carbon fiber... so it looks nice.
