I usually set the gear mesh and tighten the top screw. Then remove the pinion gear so I have clear access to the bottom screw. Once that is done you can use a L shaped allen key to tighten the bottom screw. Or you can use a ball hex driver and slide it through between the universal bone and top turnbuckles to reach the bottom screw. That's how I normally do it but I don't have my car in front of me so I might not be 100% correct on that. Hope this helps.

I do the same as jdawg81, with balldriver, no L-wrench. I use cap head screws so I can use a larger balldriver to lessen the chances of stripping the head.

It also helps to grind a little off the OD of the bottom screw head. Some of them can be a tight fit; there isn't much clearance.

Thatís a great idea on the socket head cap screws instead of the button ones!

Iím assuming neither of you have the latest version of the motor mount?

I'm guessing no for me. All of my cars were purchased used, and all have the same mount.

The last generation motor mount is excellent. It is a two piece design that allows you to mount the motor to an aluminum piece and then that piece will slide on a mount that is bolted to the chassis that has a set screw to allow ultra-fine adjustment of the mesh and when you have it where you want it, you tighten two screws perpendicular to the motor to bolt the two pieces together. No more difficulty setting mesh or tightening of screws.

That explanation was probably terrible....sorry.

I have an Evo 2 that is the most recent design with a lot of other options. I run it in VTA and itís phenomenal.

Hey folks

I'm running 17.5T evo 2 with alum chassis and carbon top deck. Are folks also running the center spine stiffener when also running top deck or removing it?
