Since it is blocked by the a-arm.
Hmmm... My solution is to first unscrew the upper nut of the rear left damper... Then pull the A-arm upper a little bit!

Lightbulb lower screw for motor mount....

I Really found the best tool that you can use to get the lower screw off .. and you don't have to take any thing off to get to it either ......A HUDY Hex driver with the head that is kind of rounded makes life really easy especially since I now use PAL short arms on all my "Cuda's"...

But even when I used the Square Hard nylon arms it was much simpler

As I know,the Square one is only for Alex Barracuda.If you want the one for Pal,One-flag is your only choice.

It is a bit bulky...but for the amount of weight that I add to the motor side anyways with the normal Cuda Chassis it looks like it would make the balance more even..
but then again the square mount is the lightest compared to the stock one
