Default shim for motor mount

Hi,

I want to run Maubuchi motor in my T2, however, I need to push the motor out 1-2mm for the gears to mash. Does anyone know of any metal motor shim I can get? Thanks

you can try flipping the pinion gear around on the motor shaft* the teeth are closer to the can. Thats what you have to do on the RDX with the off-set motor mount.
Try that, cause that will keep you from moving weight further away from the center line of the chassis.

I did that, even grinding the motor shaft so I can push in the pinion, but still only 50% of the gears are touching.

On the tamiya cars, it fits, (maubuchi's are Tamiya motor, so they better fit)The only way is to push it out. maubuchi is not that fast so pushing the motor out 1-2mm will not make that much difference on the balance of the car.

If you already know the answer, why would you ask a question?

His question was if anybody knew of a shim to use, not that he wasn't sure what to do.

My question is where to get one?

I tired two shims from the Tamiya mini cooper engine mount, however, those paper engine mount shims are to insulate the heat transfer so the plastic won't melt. I would prefer to use all metal so the motor mount would act as additional heatsink.

Is it possible to use some metal tubes and longer motor mounting screws?

something similar to this but thicker:

Trinity used to make what you're looking for - Motor spacer heatsink - part number 4043.

Unfortunately I don't think you can get them anymore

Thanks.

I just bought the last two they have in stock. I hope they have it instead of inventory error.
