Default RC18 With VXL 380 Motor From Mini E Revo

Here is my RC18 with a 380 VXL Motor...
I made a 380 Motor mount that bolts on to the chassis.
There were two easy modifications I had to do to the chassis
First drill the holes to bolt in the 380 VXL RC18 Motor mount.
Then cut the upper chassis to fit the motor..
Here are some pics below.

Will be making my RC18 540 Motor mount the same way.

Not sure yet.. I made it so you can adjust the distance of the motor to spur gear... Once Im done doing a video of the 380 rc18 I'll pop the 540 in. And post the pinion gear size.
