I did'nt think that the BD7 '15' Chassis would Fit onto a BD7 '16', due to the Rear Mounting Location of the Motormount?

Yes, I think the Holes are in the same place, but the '15' had 2 Screws with a centre location lug, whereas the '16' has 1 centre securing Screw, with 2 lugs.

There's nothing in the manual stating any diameter specifics. This is a 540 motor, the edges are a sharp 90deg. so it hits the upper deck, too much to lightly modify the motor or upper deck. I have a 96T spur and a 35T pinion and the space is huge.
I'm gonna have to return it. Is there a specific type of motor I need to order? I now realize I'm gonna need a motor with chamfered edges. I was hoping to do this on a budget to get my feet wet and have some fun, then go with something much nicer later on.
Just wanted to give an update with motor. I decided to keep the motor because shipping was too expensive. I ended up marking where the motor hits the upper deck and filed the corner of the motor to fit. It fits great now. I just need to get some new spur gears because my 39T pinion is the only one that meshes/seats well on the 96T spur. Got it powered up last night and I have some tweaking to do before she hits the streets of NH!

Thanks for all the help and support!

If you're bashing set it up for low traction to make the car easier to drive. I would run as much droop and ride height I could get away with.

I use a 14 to practice in a parking lot with a 4.5T motor. Running close to 6mm ride height 5.5 front, 4.5 rear droop. 388cst and yokomo black springs all around. Diff oil at 1k and roll centers set low.
