Default Truggy engine mounts

Hey guys

I own a MBX6T and am after quick change engine mounts as I will have 2 motors and will make things easier to change the motors over rather than re-aligning the mesh again... The standard ones I can take the motor out but have to use ball point hex drivers which are hard to tighten the motor down with... If there are any alternatives to this let me know...

Thanks in advance

I use the stock mounts in my Losi truggy and buggy and I can swap the engines just as easily as if I were using quick-change mounts. I use ball-end hex drivers with no problem.

If you can't get the bolts tight enough with your ball-end driver, your tip may be worn... or you're tightening too hard. I tighten my bolts hand-tight and have never had one come loose.

All of that said, I think the KingHeads mount extends further up the chassis as a brace. That's a benefit.
