Default .060 offset transmission

I use the standard shaft no mods...

you do have to use longer tranny screws

should fit otherwise.....

I was confused for a bit there. For some reason I was thinking the 0.060" spacer was bigger than it actually is. I did the same mod with the same size spacers and with longer transmission screws.

I tried to move it more than 0.060" and this is when I ran into issues with outside slipper plate not engaging the top shaft properly.

Spacing over the motor seems a little overkill since the left side of the car is heavier no matter what (speed control) why not just compensate with weight to balance both the speedo and motor on the right side of the chassis?

I doubt moving the plate is anything big , but a little here and a little there adds up ....

What you are really after is to center the rotor. There is so much torque being applied via the rotor that putting it in the center line of the car very well could make the car more consistent.

I ran the motor plate spaced about 2mm last year and wasnt all that impressed. I dont think its that big of a difference it needs to be more. When I saw BT's car at CRCRC it was spaced 4mm. Which you cant do without a different topshaft.

I am bummed however, I placed an order with ae for the new towers and they said the front was out of stock but might be in before my order processed. Well I got the new rear towers but the front towers were all the old style.

No I havent been to the CC yet. My job requires too much of my time. Races like that require a whole week off.

I suppose it would mean less weight to add to achieve balance.

I can buy that, it would be easy enough to figure out where the rotor's center of mass is.

Milled plate=more surface area=better cooling. Also, as stated before, the milled plate won't flex like the flat plate will. Hence why 1/8th scale shock towers are always milled out in the areas where it doesn't bolt to something. That's not a weight savings thing, that's to keep the shock towers from flexing too much. AE's main reason for making the milled motor plate was for heat dispersion when people where using really hot modified brushed motors. Heat isn't as much of an issue now with brushless motors. And i personally believe that the weight difference between the two is really not noticable.

I really doubt it is a flex thing with the motor plate. Metal doesn't necessarily bend more if you machine more (especially partial lateral slots). I am not saying people are right or wrong, but my inclination without putting the two parts in a stress analyzer would be that they flex equally.

Maybe this is an indication of what they are developing for the B5. They are going back to the aluminum tub.
