Check this post out.
That mount at AMain should be the new part, as they have just received a new stock of parts

What ratio are you looking to hit ?

there must be a running update on this part because the version that Dave has on his car is different from the one I have. His is chamfered to allow bigger gears. I want to order the updated one. I'm worried about ordering it though because they apparently use the same part number so i have no way of knowing if it's a new or old version

Just use the live chat feature during business hours on amain's site. Explain to them what's going on. They'll probably go out to the warehouse and put their hands on the part they have in stock, and verify whether it's the new or old, and possibly even get a new picture up. That's what they did when I asked about a schui part that had been revised. Very pleased with their service.

I still have the first version and this works for me..just grind off the part where the pinion touch ....I'm using the 92T spur gear with 49T pinion which give the 3.8 FDR ... I think the 57 T pinion the biggest I can put on...

Not sure why you would want to purchase a new motor mount support when a dremel can open the area up for you. At TITC in Feb of this year I ran a 48 pitch 66 tooth spur with a 40 tooth pinion which will give a FDR of 3.3. This was the magic FDR for the 13.5 BL Hobbywing system we all used.

To get this to fit I dremeled the top and bottom of the motor support and it was good to go.

On another note since I race my BD7 on low grip netball courts and am still basically using my TITC setup. I am running yok blue springs front and rear, three hole piston, 350 weight Yokomo oil and standard shocks. I am using the 3.5 ff/fr and 2fr/5.7rr toe blocks. I have Tamiya DCJ's up front and yokomo DCJ's on the rear. I am running the plastic c hubs and the remainder of the parts are graphite.(arms, knuckles and rear hubs). I have no issues with handling. The rest of my setup is as meens yokomo setup.

I am currently running blinky 13.5 using the Trinity D3.5 motor and my car i snot much slower than a boosted 17.5.

I am very happy with the car. Tyres I am using Ride 28 blues or reds, when hotter I have been using the 32's.

Comes back to car setup and driving. I forgot to mention I do not have the steering brace fitted and I do not fit screw into the motor support through the top deck.

Just my thoughts,

Later,

Calvin.

Thanks for the info. i also wanted to get the new one because mine is one mil too short too. in order to use the screw, i have to use a 1 mil shim to keep my top deck from bowing

make sure your not getting the new kit without the aluminum. the aluminum would very easy justify the 200.

Yokomo just came out with a toned down version if you will to be more cost effective.

Otherwise I'm ordering a spare kit.....

Perhaps, but that's been the price for a while now in Japan
Shame they cost so much in HK, Europe & USA

Not sure if floating servo saver is included

and its worth buying from them overseas at that price. Ive ordered from them before and their airmail was here in 4 days to the US. not to mention amin charges shipping and tax for us in CA on top of the 530

It's the Dollar to Yen exchange rate. The Yen is starting to be really cheap again. You should demand your distributors and retailers to adjust their pricing.
