Help me out here, how can I leverage the new motor mount properly? Do I still have to extend the flat spot on the shaft of trinity motors or am I missing something?

Mount the pinion so that the set screw faces the battery instead of the motor...it is a little harder to tighten down but it works just fine.

Oh, that works? How come we didn't try that before? Any issues with the belt hitting the set screw on the pinion and fraying?

I have done it from time to time...just have to be careful to ensure you have clearance.

O and BTW all went smooth with build last night no issues at all . I built to kit set up ...for now .
Have to ask tho . I'm using a orca 325g battery . what's folks doing to balance car that might not be considered normal ways of balancing the car ?
I (so far have moved the heavier items of the car out some on electronics side added a larger 35mm fan used the supplied savox screws to secure servo(nice btw) at full length has anyone successfully moved battery in any ?

I am using the orca 7000 in mine along with the VX a 1251 and KO rx on the electronics side. I had to add 10g on the electronics side to balance it. I put it on the front left under the steering rack. Perfect balance and weight. I tried moving some stuff outward on the elec side but didn't like it hanging off the chassis. I was able to do that on the '13 but the chassis is narrower on the '14 so I had to go with added weight.

you can always shim the motor so it sticks out more instead of adding weight to that side

I have seen one person do this and I thought it was stupid ... He stripped several spurs in incidents that happen on the track . using large steel shims might allow it to work tho . but this for me would be a last option .

i dont do this currently(weight added to battery side)but have done in the past,i used 10mm diameter alu spacers from a tc6 that i filed a flatspot on,4 in total making 2mm,i crashed alot then and never had an issue,if the right hardware is used it shouldnt be a problem

Yea a larger OD washer would be OK but still don't like the idea of setting motor out we rub a lot on our track ....

Someone mentioned a shim especially designed to space a motor out, but it was mentioned that moving a heavy weight (180g) for a motor further out can effect the handling, making it more difficult to drive.

Here's a picture of my 1251 servo 90* to the chassis. Its dead on with no sub trim at 90*. With full travel I get 25* in each direction and each side is balanced within 7% of each other on my KO radio. So it can be done the way the book shows and have even travel both directions.
