It's tucked and closed in by the suspension stuff, that it's a little hard to get to. I haven't had mines yet, but if I'm not mistaken, the Evo2 motor mounts (I had an Evo2) are the same. You need a really long allen wrench w/ the short side shaved down to be able to fit it and tighten the motor mount. The TC-3 motor mount is great, as the screws come from the top instead of the side, making it very easy to get to. But then again, it's a weak mount, and the motor moves out of place very easily. I luved my Evo2 so much more than my TC-3. I just hope the Evo3 doesn't dissapoint when I it reaches my doorstep=)

Overgear: Kind of difficult or takes time to change your motor, which is fast with my m2 n O4R, especially when u change ur motor after every heat.

Wink Reposition of body mounts

I want to use a special body and want to move the rear mounting posts to mount from the chassis instead of the shock tower. Will this cause a problem??? It is bad to do???? or is this okay and won't effect the car???

Default body mounting

capricess-yes it will affect the handling of the car-but-if its the only place you can mount body posts-then I thnk you dont have a choice. Also-if its a special body-then every thing is thrown out the window anyways. Go ahead and mount it the way you have to and see what happens.

capricess-this is the best explanation I can come-up with-I hope it makes sense!!! Put your car on four scales. Place a welght on the rear shock tower and see what all four scales read. Now place that same weight somewhere else on the chassis-say further forward. Now read what all four scales read. They should all read different numbers now. Think of the body-and also the wind going over the body as weight (i.e. downforce). Thats why I say it will affect handling-but as I said-just changing body styles (Startus to Lexus or sedan to GTP car) or moving the same body forward or back a 1/2" can drastically affect handling!!!

I race on carpet with some pretty unforgiving track rails.
Will using a lock-nut adhesive to keep the srews from losening work?

Default screws

Thats what I am going to do!! Put a dab of trusty old blue loctite. The screws were coming out on my one-way as well and I did in fact have bent and broken teeth!! I just didnt feel it notching because I had the motor in the car.BTW-Took the bearings out of car-cleaned them and oiled them-WOW!!!

rayhuang,

I was reading your earlier posts about the car seems to be lacking a bit of "rip" off the line. Just curious, what rear toe-block are you running? The kit calls for the "C" block which gives you 3 degrees of rear toe total. I think that's a bit much. I'm going to change to the "A" block on mine, which I believe should give me 2 degress of toe. Let me know which block you were running so I can have a reference to

Thanks

Steve,

AA front and AA rear. Maybe going to 1.5 degrees of rear toe next practice day. Car is totally planted with 2-degrees rear toe in. I can definately benefit from less.

My GT7 showed up so I am putting that in-that should take care of the rip problem.

Default blocks

I am running in the rear c /front and a /rear.Really frees up the car.I thought it was really good.I am running on carpet,so in other applications it may not work.Give it a try,especially if your racing stock.I think it gives me about 1 degree toe.

Default Spur gear-Easy!!!

Hey guys,

I had to change my spur Sunday and thought-oh no!! But it was so fast and easy!!! Just remove the 6-screws on the top plate on rear tranny and motor mount and loosen almost all the way all the screws on center brace. dont loosen screws on front tranny case. Dont remove the center brace. Remove rear diff from car. PUll driveshaft back a touch and push out pin that holds the spur gear in place. Pull the driveshaft out. Lift center brace up a touch and remove spur gear assy. Replace spur gear and reverse process. Its like a 2 minute change!!! As fast and easy as the TC3!!! I guess the Kai conversion is NOT necessary to do fast spur changes.

Ray

racenut123-yes-I think CA would be 1 degree of rear toe. BA might be 1.5.
