the stock engine mounts are universal as they are two peices and can be moved individualy to accommadate different engines.

NAHH, THE BEARING STILL ROLLS GOOD, THE MELTED COMPOSITE SHEILD PEELED THE SEALS OFF THE BEARING, AND IT SPLATTERED ITSELF ALL OVER THE DIFF CUP, THE ONLY REASON I'M REPLACING THE CUP IS B/C I CAN'T SCRAPE THE SH** OFF, AND THE BEARING B/C I DON'T HAVE A RUBBER SEAL THAT SIZE...JUST THE RETAINER BLEW UP

HOW can I move the mounts if the engine does not line up with the screw holes?

Lets start from the beginning. The engine needs to be bolted to the engine mounts, then the mounts gets bolted to the chassis. Are you saying that the screw holes for every engine (.21) are spaced exactly the same, and will line up perfectly with these mounts? Why do the other engine mounts come in specific engine designs?

Improvement vs the stock chassis

The BCE 8x8 chassis is 7075 "BILLET" vs the stock being 7075 "Alclad". Thus the strength factor is much greater with the BCE. So overall chassis wear is going to be way less, and there is less chance of bending from hard crashes, or landing wrong on extreme jumps that are on most US tracks now. BCE also slightly changed the geometry of the front & rear center drive line, so there is slightly more clearance to help prevent possible bearing failure due to shock from casing jumps (Pushing the drive line/pinion threw the inner bearing in the diff case), which has happened a few times from racers. The 8x8 chassis is 3mm also, but will most likely be lighter when the final production is finished. Mine is one of the prototype just for just testing. The cost is going to be very similar to a replacement stock Chassis so it's affordable too. Its a win win situation IMO...

Biggest thing I noticed when testing & racing was the increase performance it gave the buggy going threw the rut's. It improved the overall handing characteristics on a blown out track. I turned my fastest lap times with it, and helped me increase my point lead in the Nitro Nights series I'm racing in. All on a track that is progressively getting more and more rutted.

Yep, they all have a standard spacing.

Most .21's have the same hole spacing. What changes is WHERE on the block they locate them. Thats why the need for 2 differnt types of upper blocks. This helps get the mesh on the bell/spur line up.

Some .21's have a wider case, between the mounts, but the same bolt spacing dimensions.

Jaz, tell your avatars boobas to stop staring at my eyes!
