Its 3mm compare to the stock 2mm, I think ABC option mounts are 2.5mm. Anyway I Tq'ed and won my first race with the Gambado on its first race, even beating one of the guy who used a 4wd mini. I m loving it and its damn good.

Not really sure as no one has them as yet, a friend of mine ordered some and when he gets them I will post the thickness, from the pics I would want to say they look like 3 to 4 mm thick and thin in the places where it needs to mount back to the org spots.

Plus abc hobby said they should have there upgrade motor mounts by the latest mid July

Hope this help

Thanks
Andre

Cheers, that's what I thought from looking at them. I will probably go for the Jet one's, as they'll go nice with the carbon chassis that I run on mine.

I will probably leave the steel counter gears TBH, I remember the problems I had when running the HPI Switch, with that having plastic-metal gears..

I run the the steel counter and haven't had any issues, before I would strip the gear inside the gear box (20t) and would have to do a lot of work to replace it so the steel one at least in the gear box I would recommend.

I've never had a problem with the gears actually inside the gearbox itself! Seems as though each car is different lol. For the time being I'm just going to get the Jet motor mount and see if that cures it.

After running this car for 2 months I think I know the culprit for the counter gear strip problem. My car has already been upgraded to the thick motor mount (Jet Racing) and I bashed this car almost everyday eversince, 2 days ago I stripped the counter gear (outside gear) for the 1st time. I pulled it a part and found the counter gear shaft (part no 25666) has worn out at where the shaft's bearings sit. The shaft wobble and not running true making the counter gear's mesh with the spur gear inconsistent and eventually stripping itself out. I confirmed it with my friend's car which has regular stripping problem and his also has the wobble worn out counter gear shaft. We replaced his with a new shaft and the stripping problem went away. I think the aluminum material for that counter gear shaft is too soft and can easily wears out.

I hope ABC HOBBY can address this problem and maybe can come up with an option counter gear shaft made out of Hard Steel or Spring Steel, for sure it will last longer. Anyway i m still loving this car, its the car to beat at my local club.
