Default Elite RC motor mount!

Guys, I just got off the phone with Brandon from Elite RC and he has a kit in hand and will start work on the motor mount. He said he should know by this weekend what the mount will look like.

I'll post an update after I speak with him!

I thought he needed a certain amount of people to commit to buy before considering designing a mount? If not, then is he also designing one for the SC too? I would definitely buy both.

What's wrong with the stock mount?

The demand is there my friend Folks have been clamoring for an aftermarket mount for some time but with little focus on the 1/10th 4wd/SC space by the designers no such item was available. That will be changing shortly!

Will do! He emailed me last night with a few questions regarding the DEX and the DESC so I will keep you folks updated on progress. These mounts will be on par with his designs, and we all know how nice those are

Wrong, nothing! If you have ever used an ERC mount you'll know what I'm referring to. His designs offer a clean, quick, mechanically sound alternative to the stock mount. With an ERC mount servicing your motor becomes markedly quicker and provides for a consistent mounting process every time, with very low instance or likelihood of the motor shifting during operation when properly installed. The ERC mount incorporates the front portion of the center diff mount, similar to the stock mount, with single piece CNC construction, and a mounting block secured to the endbell of the motor, with your choice of either M3 or M4 bolt patterns. Installing/uninstalling your motor(s) literally takes seconds and offers precise positioning every time.

Keep an eye out for it my friend, I am convinced you will be thoroughly impressed

Somehow your post made me think of this
+ YouTube Video
ERROR: If you can see this, then YouTube is down or you don't have Flash installed.

Keen to hear how these turn out tho...

I've been down this road with Elite. He said he wanted 25 people to commit to buying one before he even started work on one.

I got the names of 12 people.

On another note there is a whole tread that popped up on here saying no one can get ahold of him. Most of his mounts are sold out and have been for months.

Default Slipper Wobble

To the guys that posted about the slipper wobble issue - thanks. My new built DEX has this problem too. Thought it was just slightly warped spur at first, but you can see the center rear out drive and shaft wobbling now.

I am not alone. Wondered why my DESC410R with 550 and mod 1 gears was quieter... I emailed Team Durango and we will see.

Wobble issue. Check all 4 of the screws that you mount the center slipper with. Loosen all of them. put the slipper in place with the clip "FULLY" inserted, and slowly tighten all 4 screws a little at a time in an x pattern, much like you tighten the diff screws. if that doesnt do it you might need to check the bottoms of the mounts to make sure they are perfectly square.

Are you going to run it onroad?

You can probably lock the diff if you use the desc10r locked center.
