I'm assembling the mid motor conversion kit and I have a question about the AM77MM part as it's a bit different than what's shown in the instructions. The instructions shows the bottom of this part to be flat but mine is raised up on one side to allow a gap between the part and the chassis. When installing the one screw at the end of this part am I supposed to install a washer between AM77MM and the chassis?

similar to motor mount on the A-800X standard motor position chassis, a spacer and screw can be used in that hole to stiffen the chassis, or leave the screw out to allow for more chassis flex.

Thanks for the clarification, I never had the A800X so I wasn't aware that it was similar to that motor mount. I think I'll leave the
screw out for now and add it later to see if there's a difference in how the car feels.

I followed the instructions for MMCX-2. It doesn't show a washer but it does show to install a screw. Anyways I'm leaving this screw off for now. I'm looking forward to some track time with the mid motor conversion later this month. I'm hoping there will be an improvement over the A800a with the khaki chassis.

Take care to not "slip" to far inside the hole of AT55M with your 2mm allen wrench.
If your 2mm wrench has a long tip, is possible you connect into the head of the screw which hold the AT120 Pulley in position. At this case it feels like AT55M is tight, but it may isn't.
May check this tip at tightening of your AT55M spur nut.

Hey Franko, I probably won't make it to the Big Chill but will probably see you at the track if you ever come up for a visit.

Its too expensive then I realized it's a conversion kit. Wonder if they sell just the aluminum chassis?
