Default Help Needed - Universal/Generic Brushless Motor Mount

Hi,
I'm building a custom 1/8th monster out of a few trucks/parts. That said I'm out of the nitro game...so I need a mount for a Tacon 4074 motor - site say's it measures 39.5MM diameter.

I'm looking for something thats an "L" type bracket (I could probably make one but like to keep the truck looking clean not DIY)...or some type of full jacket type -- one that clamps all the way around.

I've googled and found the Tekno TKR4140 but it says it's for 40MM - which I would assume would still work at .5MM short.

Any others out there?

TKR4140 will work fine, that mount is for 36.2 to 40mm motors, the motor attaches to the mount via screws that bolt into the front end bell

Those mounts are not fully enclosed. All the recent ones (with the past 2-3 years) are opened up fore weight reduction. I have Teknos with this mount and I feel it actually helps reduce temperatures because the mount, being bolted solidly to the chassis, lets the chassis act as a big heat sink. I know my chassis is warmer right where the motor mount is bolted to it.
