Default One piece engine mount

Can somebody explain to me the advantages of a one piece engine mount? Does it make it easier to swap engines and/or set proper gear mesh? Or, is there another advantage to them? Thanks.

The two biggest advantages are:

1: you do not have to reset gear mesh ever again, but this only works if you are running the same gearing rates, on all your engines.

2. Its is so much easier and faster to get your engine in and out for cleaning, working on, etc. You dont have to have 8 hands to hold the car upside down, while you try to hold the engine down, and put the screws in underneath.

If you race, and/or have multiple engines, its a must have, and king-heads is sometimes cheeper than the stock engine mount
nothing to see here................................

Sup Jaz240,

I use the KH extend e-z mount that serves all the purposes above and the extended part keeps my clutch bell from hitting the chassis. This is on a rc8, you will see on most rc8 a spot where the CB has wore a spot on the chassis
