Thanks!
Mike Beautiful! but not allowing for the optional motor mount means you cannot adjust antisquat! is there a way around this?

Thanks Marcus!

You are correct- cannot use the option rear bulkhead/ motor mount. I'm working though on a bolt in NO DREMELing solution (that 3Racing option is a poorly designed PITA) because I do like the idea of being able to raise the lower inner hinge pins.

It's funny though- a few UF1 regulars have shown me their antisquat setting and I always reply I have PLENTY of steering without resorting to anti squat on both carpet and asphalt tracks. Must be a combination of the improved front roll center/ camber gain and chassis flex characteristics

Its the on power steering that i am concerned about, how long until your mount will be ready? also what is it about your chassis that will not allow the option mount? is it something that i can modify my self?

Also we run 37-38tooth pinions how will that come into play?

The top plate is shortened 4mm so that there is full clearance for stock motors and gearing. Because of that the option motor mount will not reach the top plate holes.
My FGX has no problem with on power steering I wish I had video lol.

The optional motor mount only uses one attachment to the upper deck on the passenger side, which really doesnt have to even be there. have you tried to mount one up? I am looking at it now on my car and looking at the pix of your chassis i dont see why it wouldnt work as long as the holes on the bottom chassis are the same!! HMMMMMMMM

Hindsight is always 20/20. I always sell stuff I need later. Then I have to buy it new again because no one else is selling theirs.

I'm gonna try that out when I get mine, just clicked "Purchase". I do like that ability to shim the anti-squat. Excited!
