I know cause i have used it on both motors, it was made for the sonic mach 1 because it had a plastic timing cover, the mach 2 has an aluminum one stock so not need to replace it but i did any way.The timing marks line up the same as factory. If money is tight i would spend it on things to make you car go faster or handle better, cause this just will make your motor look cool.

Ok. Thanks. I was intending to buy it to help with motor temps. Did they help with motor temps at all?

Can anyone tell me what kind of differences in motor temps they saw when going from the plastic end bell cover to the aluminum JC one for the reedy motors?

Yes, cut it where you have the black line.

Default #2181 ball cup placement ??

Anyone have images other then on the few jconcepts website on what #2181 ballcups to use where on the AE Rigs? I have the complete .2 collection.

If no pics, a explanation of where what cups are used would be appreciated.

I do understand the rear hub and steering linkage ones of course.

Thanks in advance

It's racer preference:

The rounded cups are standard length and are my preferred cup. The square cups are longer (overlap the turnbuckle) for added strength, but can be a little more difficult to use. These cups are made from a much harder material and can be very tight on the turnbuckle threads. I have found that if you pre-drill the cup with a 3/32 drill bit, it threads on much easier allowing for easier adjustment.

That's with the paper backing; I still prefer the clear uncut chassis tape over the precut
