Doesn't look to be any camber link length adjustment.

the motor mount looks a little funky & flimsy. how is it designed? its been tested so there isn't no tweak in there.. hopefully...

Nice motor mount. I am really annoyed too when I have to readjust gear mesh every time I take the motor out.

Flip the diffs and the Spur/pulley assembly. Some do this to other cars as well, like the Xray '09.

Its the same motor mount off the Schumacher CAT SX off-road 4wd buggy....seems to work ok there.

jag88:
All the carbon fiber is out in development still - the camber link mounts will have multiple holes/lengths if needed.

LATC3:
Been in testing for about 8 months or more - no worries!

Love the motor mount design! Great idea.

As most have done, I too would like to say, Nice Friggin motor mount!

Obviously we are hungry for a little inovation.

I also like the new stand-offs (arm mounts). Much less complicated than on the MI3.

The motor mount is nice, but why not put some fins on it and make it into a heat sink right away?

Cause then they wouldn't be able to sell you the aftermarket one later :D

+1!!!
that canister holder is ingenious! cans can now be made shorter because of the lack of the need to screw from the front of the can!
= more center weight!
= 2 less screws
= more range so the spur options have expanded!

:confused:most importantly...what is the price?:confused:

i was considering the BD5, but i am now reconsidering!(depending on price)

very awesome! I'm really liking the clamp. On the cat that is such a nice thing to have!

I will have one for sure!

Is anyone going to have one at REEDY? I want to see it!

I looked at the SCHU site at its suggested retail is 350L which is something like $511usd. Not sure what street price will be but guys are complaining that the $510 for the BD5 is too high as well.

Shawn Palmer 04-02-2009 01:08 PM

USA Street price isn't finalized just yet, but it'll fall somewhere in the $479-$499 range.
