You probably shouldnt. We are talking about the middle mount which goes behind the spur/top deck and using a bigger spur. Best to use the carbon middle mount as its easier to file lightly.

Thanks!
Why do you want to run such a hot motor?

You would need a 108 tooth spur gear to use a 31 tooth pinion gear, and you don't need to file anything. Your roll-out might be okay for your 11x2.

106/32 or a 106/34 is perfect for a stock or 19T brushed motor.

Take that 100t spur gear you have and go hide it somewhere, it's useless unless you go brushless and run a motor with a low KV.

Default Brushless motor mount

Has anyone run the new brushless motor mount. I know it moves the layshaft 2mm higher allowing the use of bigger spurs, but what i am wondering is, does it allow the motor to move more towards the rear of the car so I can achieve a mesh with smaller pinions and bigger spurs? It looks as if it does in pictures, but I wld like someone to confirm before I buy one.

At the moment I have to change between 96, 100, 105 and 110 spurs depending on wether I'm racing stock brushed, stock brushless, 19t or mod, and itrs a bit of a pain. Its not a huge job to change them, but would be much better if it didn't need done all the time.

For some reason, it's the only motor I have on hand. Unless someone wants to take a brand new Team Checkpoint 11T off my hands...

Sorry for all the questions guys, but will 31/108 and 37/108 fit in the Cyclone? Those are what I am considering running for the 11T and the CO27.

I've got a 106/32 and have enough room to 108 without the gear sticking out of the bottom of the chassis.

You'd probably be okay, try it and see if you get a heat issue!

what are some good ways to take some grip out of the car? we have a very high grip asphalt track and i have gone down to 0 degree tow black in the front but by the end of the day the traction still comes up more so i still need to take some grip out. i have 30 wt. and pink springs in the front. i have the roll centers on the camber plates at 2mm and 1.5mm spacers under the tow blocks. no kick up or dive front and rear

when i ran my 9x1 checkpoint i'm using 32/108. i guess 37/108 will fit because i've tried using 41/106 with a 23t motor

Are you going to SIR tommorrow?

If you want I can come down and you can check out my set-up. I also saw your post on SIR's thread. I've got some stock black spare v2 bones. I switched to the steel ones and have 3 of the originals. Let me know?

yea ill be at sir tomorrow.

i have some more bones now, just getting a new spool. right now i am trying to get my mip shinny cvds to work on my worn out spool. just need to file a bit more back and they should work... with blades... woot.. haha that will be nice to be able to use blades. but who knows i might need some more bones sooner or later... haha

i have a few more things to change on my setup to help free it up form more. but i might be willing to barrow your 0 block until mine gets here.

fjm9898, a spool will settle the car down quite a bit and also take away steering. You may also want to use a heavier oil if you are finding the car too twitchy, I like to use 40wt.
