Very nice S400 indeed Paul. No reason anyone would have to put that down.

How did you modify the motor mount? Dremel, or machine shop?

Do you have the part number for the Tamiya drive shafts that your using.

Thanks,
Steve

im an engineer so all machined ALTHOUGH it is still done rather crudely as there is not much other way to do it.

The aluminium is very very soft so it definitely can be done with a dremel, just may not be very symmetrical (which haha I find very annoying if its not perfect)

Part numbers for the 48mm are #53871 (pretty sure) but im sure i remember someone else in the thread new a number for both the 46mm and 48mm.

i stripped my last rear diff pulley yesterday... ... anyone in malaysia with rear diff pulley in stock??? i tried out an old parking lot track n this little piece of stone stucked between the belt n the diff... now my S400 got to rest again until i found the alloy front knuckles n rear diff pulley... meanwhile, the car has been great joy n fun although i never win any competition... KSChu is the new 1/10 EP all rounder TC champion of the year in our state...

any news of updates of S400..? wher can i get the alloy kuckles..? need to stock up some spare parts for the car for the coming races...

My shock tower is 100% original, no changes was necessary, just the steel ring.
