They say 6/15 right now but not sure how accurate that is and is only 5 days before the JBRL which is not a lot of time to get in stock and shipped.

I run a 15t and even bumped up my timing 5-10*. Motor runs 135-150F.

Hi guys,

I'm running a converted 1.5 8ight with the original motormount. But every time I race it my mesh is looser. I need to reset it every 2-3 races... The bolt is tightend really good and I did threadlock in it, but nothing seems to help.

I'm running a 2200kv castle neu with the motor brace (which I had to modify a bit) geared 14/48 or 13/45. Stripped my delrin spur last weekend, because my moved away from the spur...

Do you guys have a fix for this? Also sometimes is hard to get the motor out of the mount when I drove it a few times without taking the motor out every time...

I despise the motor brace that is on the chassis at the rear of the motor. I never run it. Chassis flexes and hits the rear of re motor putting everything in a bind. Just my opinion.

I run it since I stripped my spur last weekend. I tought the mount was comming lose because of the big hits with the ground. Also, some of my finns from my motorcan were damaged because they hit the chasis without the brace
There seems to be no difference between running a brace or without. The mesh always comes a bit looser.

Ok then run the chassis motor brace.

Can I ask you what motor your running? The 1515 1.5Y is pretty heavy compared to a tekin buggy motor. Maybe that makes a difference too. I think I'll buy a neu 1512 of a tekin motor/combo next month.

But does your stays good, or do you need to reset very often?

Don't use the motor brace. Even the Losi guys say to take it off. That is the cause of a lot of stripped spur gears and loose motor mounts.
