I am sure Tekno will make one since they already make one for the D8.

Check with RC Monster as well. They're good quality mounts that allow you to retain the mechanical brakes if you want.

You won't hurt his rep at all. Even before I had my conversion, I read a lot of things Mike did and I consider him one if not the founding father of electric conversions.

RCM is the best place for conversions. I back them 100% and you obviousally don't know Mike that well.

Agreed.
I've only bought a thing or two of Mike's stuff, off fleabay, and craigslist, and they seem to be of nothing but good quality.

I want to back Mike up 100% as well..

Share your story, perhaps it was a mistake.

i respect what he does and all of the stuff he sells, it is all great, but what he did to get where he is today is what makes me lose respect for him. he has done great things for this hobby, but he didnt get where he is the right way imo, but i wont say anymore, because my issue with him is personal, he makes great things, so dont think his products are bad.

Please, tell me more. I am curious to know where I "gained my knowledge" without extending credit - I always give credit where credit is due (you will see names mentioned in some of my product listings to verify this statement). I am quite curious where you have "learned" this information, as I suspect the story may be skewed a bit, and I truly am curious how i have earned this loss of respect from you?.

Mike??? What did you do?

In all seriousness...you got to be kidding me? Mike not crediting anyone for ideas? Mike is one heck of a guy that never disappoints his customers. I have been one before the conversions were even out. Look at his forums you will find not one disappointed member. Yes shipping mistakes were made but Mike made sure it was corrected ASAP. He is ONE man and not towerhobbies.

Wow...Chris fine is a tool, and I highly doubt Mike has learned anything from him except what NOT to do. Chris's conversions are ridiculous, over priced, and just plain junk. When they review his stuff in the RC magazines it makes the whole BL community look bad...

No worries - and I don't think you or your brother caused me any problems - I just thought it might be nice to know what I could have possibly done to create the feelings expressed.
"what he did to get where he is today is what makes me lose respect for him" - this is where I am confused. All I have done is share my knowledge and experience, and use it to develop products that interest me, and clearly interest others in the hobby. I haven't stolen any secret code.

I did used to work for Chris Fine years ago - I fixed his nitro cars in his hobby shop(actually, I took them home and fixed them). I also PROVIDED Chris with brushless car/truck setup information, gearing information and I introduced Chris to Lehner motors and BK Electronics. The fact is, the 1st brushless car Chris Fine ever saw was my Emaxx. If you catch him in a weak moment, he may admit it, but I wouldn't count on that happening - it is the absolute truth, though. Yes, I fixed cars for him, and we had many conversations regarding brushless cars and trucks, but as I suspected, the story got skewed along the way some how(no doubt Chris told his side and nobody asked me my side). Nothing was stolen from Chris at any point in time(not by me anyways) - we both shared information - and i continue to share brushless information on a daily basis - just not with Chris.
Even through my 1st year or so in business, I continued to share knowledge and experience with Chris - I told him what combos to sell and what gearing to use with the combos (not the other way around as your brother may think) -this is just the kind of person I am, and anyone that actually knows me can surely attest to this fact. Chris and I had a "falling out" when he tried to sever my contacts and suppliers(same suppliers I had introduced him to years prior in fact!) - rather than focusing on his own business, he instead tried to bring down mine. It obviously didn't work, as I am still in business 5 years later. It sounds like he is still trying.
I didn't build my name by defacing him or anyone else - be sure about this. What's more, I can't think of any product that I offer that is anything like Chris Fine's products - I do things totally differently than they do, and the knowledge I have gained over the years has been from experience (my own and thousands of others who are customers, friends or otherwise). No stolen secret code. Nothing sheisty. Just plain hard work, determination and love of the hobby.

And we have had a D8 motor mount for a month or so - it will probably work with the truggy along with the buggy.

I don't think that finedesign is bad, I just prefer rcm and would pick them anyday I have more trust in rcm because they actually get back to me when I email them or leave a message, finedesign has only responded to some of my questions they never respond to email and they usually let their answering machine get full so u cantleave a message they rarely pick the phone up and they go through their messages once a month
